Speeding is considered a factor in a crash Wednesday evening that killed a 42 year old woman identified as Suzanna Ha, and her 10-year-old daughter Angelica Ung in Queens near the Long Island Expressway.
A Ford Explorer driven by a 46-year-old woman was speeding north on 210th Street in Bayside around 6:30 p.m. and veered to the left, crossing the double yellow line and crashed into the rear of a Toyota Camry with five passengers inside. After the Ford truck hit the Camry it continued north on 210th Street, jumping on the sidewalk and hitting a tree stump and finally coming to a stop after hitting a fire hydrant.
