Woman dies in crash with two other vehicles: Cops

CAMBRIA HEIGHTS — A fatal car crash left a St. Albans woman dead after the car she was driving caused a three-vehicle accident early Sunday, according to the NYPD.

Paulina Rodriguez, 24, was pronounced dead after she was taken to Franklin General Hospital in Long Island following the pile-up on the corner of 227th Street and 115th Avenue in Cambria Heights.

At about 2:45 a.m. Sunday cops arrived at the corner and determined that Rodriguez, who was behind the wheel of a white 2011 Hyundai, ran a stop sign while traveling north on 227th Street and hit a black Honda Civic that was traveling through the intersection on 115th Avenue, according to the NYPD.

After the initial collision, a third car going in the same direction as the Civic then plowed into the driver’s side of Rodriguez’s vehicle, police said.

A passenger in the 24-year-old’s vehicle was taken to North Shore-LIJ on Long Island, while the two other drivers remained at the scene and refused medical attention, according to a statement from the NYPD.

As of press time Monday, police had made no arrests and were investigating the crash.
