That's one of the most dangerous stretches of the parkway, there have been many deaths on that stretch of road. While some of the accidents have been attributed to speeding or DUI, it is a somewhat dangerous roadway, and it's premature to assume how the accident was caused -- at least until Newsday updates the story to include some official comment.
That someone died on the highway tonight is tragic. Yet the usual idiots who post on this board are going to start spewing their hate and stupidity now...

That light pole was probably there for many years. All of a sudden it got in the way? Just like the tree last week? That stretch of NSP is one of the most beautiful on LI, and there's no reason why it should not be safe. Moreover, the roadway was clear and dry last night. The light poles and the trees haven't moved in recent years, but something has happened to the drivers -- and at an increasing rate. Some drivers who are anxious to get to heaven and have no regard for the timetable of others seem to insist on doing twenty, thirty, forty miles per hour ABOVE the speed limit. This may be nature's way of cleaning out the gene pool. To those that insist on doing 80 or 90 mph: do what you want, but don't take ME with you. Farewell to yet another foolhardy driver (the list seems to grow by leaps and bounds each week).

When will people realize that Robert Moses, the man who designed the Parkways, designed just that. Park Ways, not commuter roads. Not only that, he did not drive, so he did all his planning from the front passenger seat. So, originally, it was a drive through a long park to get to a park.

Robert Moses was a designer of roads, that's for sure. Did you know he never learned to drive? Did you know he had the bridge heights measured so that bussing the city folk to the beach was impossible...the black city folk. Did you know that about Robert Moses? A brilliant, racist non-driver.

I live here, idiot, you live elsewhere. I have lived here for 40 years, I've been driving that stretch of road for 30 years. it's a dangerous stretch of road, and yes, some of the accidents are attributable to speeding & etc., but not all...a police officer died on that road not too long ago, he was recognized by his fellow officers as a geniume hero. you think he's one of your "idiots"?

I just love how everyone assumes they know what happened.

here are the facts. they somehow veered off the road, bounced off the median and then hit the light pole. why they veered off the road has not been stated in the media.

you might be right about speeding, but there are other reasons for the car to veer off the road...mechanical difficulties come to mind.
