A 24-year-old college student was killed in a car crash in Cambria Heights on Sunday after she went through a stop sign and then collided with two other cars, according to the NYPD.
Paulina Rodriguez, a Cambria Heights resident who attended Hunter College, was driving a 2011 Hyundai sedan north on 227th Street at around 2:45 a.m. when she ran a stop sign at 115th Avenue, police said.
Rodriguez hit a 2012 Honda Civic traveling east on 115th Avenue cops said, before stopping within the intersection. Her car was then struck on the driver’s side by a black 2007 Mercedes Benz that was also traveling eastbound on 115th Avenue.
EMS transported Rodriguez, of 201st Street, to Franklin General Hospital in Valley Stream, LI, where she was pronounced dead on arrival. Her front-seat passenger, 19, whom the police did not identify, was taken to North Shore University Hospital in Manhasset and is in stable condition, police said. The drivers of the other two vehicles refused medical attention.
