You can bet speed played a role. On that stretch traffic is usually pretty light and people fly.

Slow down people and keep to the right, it's much safer.

Trucker: she was in the right lane. he crossed all the way over after jumping the median.

Not sure what he was doing to be able to launch over the median that way.

Lets just hope she and her girls have a speedy recovery.

The LIE and NS Parkway. Average speed on the LIE is 80-85 mph and a bit less on the NS Pkway. Cops are afraid to monitor the roads cause they are eating donuts in the local towns. I once had a cop coming up behind me when I was doing about 90 in the left lane of the LIE. I thought I was going to be ticketed by the cop swerve around into the middle lane and passed me doing about 120. I just kept on honkering up to 100 and cruised the rest of the way home.
The Long Island roadways rock especially the LIE.

Hey Swervy lady...Watch your mirrors. You can't always change lanes without warning.

Drivers today are not defensive nor consciensous
