Westhampton, NY (May 01, 2021) – A woman was killed and several others were injured during a chain-reaction accident on Thursday, April 29th on Sunrise Highway.
Sources reported that the initial two-car accident happened at about 1:40 p.m. in the eastbound lanes of Sunrise Highway near the Westhampton exit when a 2016 Chevrolet Malibu driven by 39-year-old Maria E. Riviera, a resident of Yaphank, crashed into the back of a 2011 Toyota Corolla driven by 85-year-old Josephine D’Agostino, a resident of Bellmore.
D’Agostino was pronounced dead at the scene. Rivera sustained non-critical injuries and was taken to Peconic Bay Medical Center.
As the parkway was blocked by the deadly collision, a separate crash occurred when a tractor-trailer operated by 58-year-old John Bieber, a resident of Baiting Hollow, slowed for traffic and was struck in its back-end by three vehicles driven by 53-year-old Olga Allende-Hernandez, a resident of Calverton, 45-year-old Adrian Flores-Garcia, a resident of Elmhurst, and 88-year-old Richard Nigro, a resident of Center Moriches.
Allende-Hernandez and Flores-Garcia were both transported to Peconic Bay Medical Center with non-critical injuries.

Multi-Vehicle Collisions in Westhampton
Multi-vehicle accidents in New York are one of the leading sources of non-natural deaths and critical injuries to several thousand victims on an annual basis. This is mainly a result of the clear disregard of the state’s driving laws which were put in place to ensure the safety of New York residents. The most common types of negligent drivers that cause these tragic situations are drivers who are on their cell phones, drivers who are intoxicated, and drivers prone to road rage.
After losing a loved one in a careless, reckless, or otherwise negligent New York car accident by no fault of the victim, it may feel like no amount of compensation could make you feel complete again. While it is true that no financial restitution can ever fully make up for your losses, filing a wrongful death claim against the responsible party or parties can go a long way toward helping you find some semblance of peace again.
