Fatal Accident in Ozone Park

Senator Joseph P. Addabbo, Jr. released the following statement after the fatal accident in Ozone Park on October 24:
“I am deeply saddened by the tragedy that occurred today in Ozone Park which claimed the life of one young girl and injured another. As the father of two young girls myself, I can only imagine the pain these families are feeling, and my thoughts and prayers are with them as they cope with this horrific incident.
“Today’s accident unfortunately highlights a major issue that parents and families in Ozone Park have been fighting against for months – students crossing a major roadway such as Cross Bay Boulevard. The idea of having young students cross this roadway has been a serious safety concern. As we offer our support to the families of these young girls, I will continue to advocate for the safety of the students to always come first, and work toward safer school corridors by promoting the need for additional crossing guards, proper crosswalks and appropriate zoning for local schools.”
