Man Killed In LIE Crash
A 24-year-old Rockaway Beach man was killed last Thursday night when his car was crushed by a tractor-trailer on the Long Island Expressway in Flushing, according to published reports.
Andrew Katara was driving a Dodge sedan on the westbound Long Island Expressway when it collided with a tractor-trailer in the center lane at about 11:30 p.m.
Katara's mangled car became partially wedged underneath the trailer, just in front of the rear wheels on the passenger side.
Newsday reported that another person was injured in the accident, but it wasn't clear if it was a passenger in Katara's vehicle or the driver of the tractor-trailer.
