An accident in Ozone Park and another in Lindenwood claimed the lives of two men in their 20s last weekend, according to the NYPD.
Dominick Bunch, a 24-year-old Sanitation Department employee from Brooklyn, died early Saturday morning when he crashed his car into a number of other vehicles, causing his Toyota to flip over, around 88th Street and Atlantic Avenue, police said. Bunch was allegedly fleeing from a fender bender in Brooklyn when he crashed in Ozone Park, according to the NYPD. A female passenger was in Bunch’s vehicle, but police said she sustained only minor injuries.
The following evening, Jesus Hernandez, 27, of Brooklyn, died when he lost control of the ATV he was riding in Lindenwood, police said.
The NYPD said Hernandez was operating the ATV northbound on 77th Street when he struck a curb around 9:40 p.m. on Sunday, causing him to be ejected from the vehicle.
Emergency providers took Hernandez to Jamaica Hospital Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.
