Monique Cobb is used to teenagers screaming when they’re driving her car. That’s because they’ve just hit a pedestrian, or a child on a bicycle, or gotten into a crash.

“They’re, like, ‘Oh my gosh!’” Cobb says. “I think we put the fear of God in them.”

Cobb is operations director for Drive Square, an Alexandria, Va.-based company that takes a simulator to gatherings of teenagers to show them what can happen if they drive while texting or after drinking.

Each student sits behind the wheel of an actual car and dons a headset that puts him on a virtual road. Then, he “drives.” The car doesn’t move, but sensors on the gas pedal, brake and steering wheel cause the car in the driver’s virtual vision to respond to his actions — or inactions.

To simulate drinking and driving, the simulator delays the response time when the student hits the brake to mirror the delayed reflexes of a drunk person. To simulate texting and driving, the driver must answer a text while driving the simulator. “We have found it to be very effective,” Cobb says.

Drive Square is one of the participants in a Keeping Teens Safe on the Roads program Saturday for teens ages 15 to 18 and their parents. The program is being offered by Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Center in West Islip, in partnership with the Aram R. Chowdhury Memorial Foundation, and it will be held at the West Islip Fire Department. It’s free, but preregistration is required.

FREE LUNCH AND RAFFLE

Participants will receive a complimentary lunch, and each student attending will be entered in a raffle to win a $1,000 college scholarship from the Chowdhury Foundation, which Ellen Chowdhury and her family established to help educate teens about risky driving behaviors.

Aram Chowdhury, who graduated from Half Hollow Hills High School East in Dix Hills in 1994, was home for his first Thanksgiving break from the University of Vermont when he went for a ride with a friend whose parents had just given him a sports car. “An 18-year-old, what does he want to do? He wants to show off. He was speeding on a local road,” Ellen Chowdhury says of the driver. Aram was in a coma for nearly two weeks before he died. “I had to do something to make my son’s death have some meaning. The heartache is always there.”

SHARING HIS STORY

Saturday’s event will include a testimonial from accident survivor Chris Memoli, who suffered traumatic brain injury after his junior year at Sachem High School, when he was a passenger in a car that was racing with another car and veered out of control. He is unable to speak; he communicates through a voice activation machine.

“Without my speech it may take a minute or so to answer some of the questions, so they get to see what we all take for granted and what I struggle with,” Memoli explains on his website, chrismemoli.com.

RULES OF THE ROAD

Other scheduled activities include nurse Maureen Sheridan, director of trauma services at Good Samaritan, describing car accident injuries that she sees in teens coming through the emergency room. And retired Suffolk County Police Officer Paul Failla, a 27-year veteran of the department, will give a lesson on driving laws.

“My goal is to get people to realize the importance of safe driving and adhering to the rules in order to avoid a possible tragedy,” Failla says. Failla has been working with Chowdhury for years on the mission of protecting kids.

Chowdhury is a nurse at Good Samaritan; her husband, Faizur Chowdhury, is an endocrinologist affiliated with the hospital, and Aram was born there. That’s why the couple wanted to partner with Good Samaritan for the driving seminar.

As for Good Samaritan, educating teens about safety is part of its mission as a community health resource, says Theresa Jacobellis, the hospital’s assistant vice president of public affairs and marketing. “We are a trauma center, so we do see a high number of these injuries in teens. It’s something we wanted to address.”

The Roosevelt woman killed in a single-car rollover accident on the Meadowbrook Parkway in East Garden City on Tuesday morning was a mother of three who had recently gotten married, her attorney said Wednesday.

Danielle Tippin, 24, who was pronounced dead at Nassau University Medical Center Tuesday morning, grew up in several foster homes on Long Island, and moved frequently, said her attorney Robert Zuflacht, of Carle Place.

“She had a very difficult life,” said Zuflacht. “The ironic thing was she was just coming into her own. That’s the tragedy of it.”

Tippin was on her way to Mineola for court hearing for a parole violation with her husband at the time of the accident, her attorney said. Her husband, the passenger in the vehicle, was not seriously injured.

Zuflacht declined to detail her criminal record, but said his client was “on a favorable path. I was confident she would have been restored to probation.”

A spokesman for the Nassau County district attorney’s office said Tippin was scheduled to appear before Nassau District Court Judge Erica Prager because she had violated probation.

According to online court records, Tippin in 2012 faced a felony charge of criminal contempt and misdemeanor charges of making a false written statement and falsely reporting an incident.

She pleaded guilty to the criminal contempt charge in May 2013, records show. Her sentence is unclear, but records show she was accused of violating probation in January.

Zuflacht said he only knew Tippin four or five months, but in that time, she had worked very hard to fix her legal woes.

“She was trying to do the right thing,” said Zuflacht. “She was straightening herself out. The sad thing was she was working to turn her life around.”

Tippin’s front-seat passenger, whom the lawyer identified as her husband, Yesser Vanegas, 22, was taken to the hospital with injuries that were not considered life-threatening, police said.

Vanegas, of Copiague, was wearing his seat belt, police said. Tippin was not wearing a seat belt in the crash that occurred at 9:44 a.m. on the northbound parkway near Exit M3, the Merchants Concourse. Venegas could not be reached Wednesday for comment. Tippin lost control of her Ford Explorer, causing it to roll over on the center median, police said, and she was ejected from the vehicle.

A State Police spokesman did not respond to a message Wednesday seeking an update on the crash investigation.

Meng gets visas for families of LIE crash vics

U.S. Rep. Grace Meng (D-Flushing) has successfully obtained visas for a group of family members of two Queens teenagers who died in a car accident on the Long Island Expressway last month.

The mother and sister of 19-year-old Jiahao Liang, of Flushing, were granted visas March 11 after Meng was able to set up interviews for both with the U.S. consulate in Guangzhou, China, that morning. With the visas, the family members will be able to fly to New York and be with Liang’s father, who is already living in Flushing, according to Meng’s office.

Liang was driving an Audi sedan between Exits 24 and 25 around 1 a.m. Feb. 18 when the vehicle slid off the roadway and struck a tree, according to police. Liang and his passenger, 16-year-old Jennifer Gao, of Oakland Gardens, were both pronounced dead at the scene.

Gao’s grandmother was also granted a visa after her March 11 interview, and her aunt was still working to complete the process as of Wednesday. Meng said Gao’s aunt fainted during her interview for unknown reasons, but the congresswoman said she is in touch with the Chinese consulate to get the results as soon as possible.

Meng said she looked into setting up interviews for the four women after a friend of both teens’ families reached out to her office and asked her to help with the applications.

Liang and Gao were both residents of Meng’s congressional district, according to their death certificates. Gao attended Benjamin Cardozo High School in Bayside and Liang was a student at St. Francis Prep in Fresh Meadows.

“The death of these two teenagers is a terrible and horrible tragedy, and our hearts go out to their family and friends,” Meng said. “We will assist them with whatever needs they may have during this difficult time.”

The visas that were obtained for each of the family members are good for one month, according to Meng’s office, but it is not yet known when the families will fly to Queens.

Funerals were held during the last week of February and both teens were cremated.

“The granting of these visas will allow the families to come to Queens to be with loved ones during this very difficult time and to take the teens’ cremated remains home to China,” Meng said.

New York Auto Accident Lawyer David Perecman Weighs in on Deadly Long …


New York Auto Accident Lawyer David Perecman Weighs in on Deadly Long Island Accident, Occurred at Site of Many Other Accidents

PRWEB.COM Newswire

New York, New York (PRWEB) March 12, 2014

Two teenagers died after one of them, the driver of the car they were travelling in, lost control and struck a tree. The auto accident occurred just hours after town leaders met to discuss the dangerous curve where the crash occurred, reported CBS News (3.6.14). Attorney at Law David Perecman wants road improvements made that will stop the accidents in Roslyn Heights, Long Island, New York.

“Dangerous curves cause many accidents. Often, drivers may be paying attention to the road but will misjudge the danger of an approaching curve,” said Perecman, an auto accident lawyer in New York for over 30 years. “The government needs to protect the safety of the people and add adequate warnings or redesign the road.”

According to CBS News, a speed warning indicator was posted almost immediately after the accident. There were also plans for flashing yellow beacons, speed restrictions, and guardrails.

For the past 10 years, there have been a number of crashes at the dangerous curve, reported CBS News. A local resident, called it “poorly designed and extremely dangerous.”

In the most recent accident, Steven Clancy, 19, was driving a 2004 Volkswagen Jetta on Roslyn Road when he mossed the curve, ran over the curb and then hit a tree. Clancy and his passenger, Javier Gonzalez, also 19, were pronounced dead at the scene, said CBS News.

“What needs to be understood is why the Roslyn Road curve remained dangerous for so many years,” said Perecman.

If a dangerously designed roadway causes an auto accident, the governmental entity responsible for designing or maintaining that roadway may be held liable

If you or a loved one is seriously injured in an auto accident caused by a dangerous road, contact the auto accident attorneys at The Perecman Firm at 212-977-7033.

L.I. Woman Meets With ‘Guardian Angels’ Who Saved Her From Burning Car

STONY BROOK, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — A woman who was injured in a fiery car crash on Long Island met with her two rescuers Tuesday, they are forever united after the harrowing experience.

As CBS 2’s Jennifer McLogan reported Tuesday, Alyssa Marie Fox, 20, veered off Route 347 near Veterans Memorial Highway in Smithtown around 2 a.m. this past Saturday. She struck a tree and the car she was driving caught fire.

The explosive scene was captured on video.

And in the words of a letter written by Fox’s parents: “She was alone, frightened, disoriented, badly injured and in a vehicle that was on its side and had ignited. While in fear that she would die there alone, a voice and a shadow appeared in the cold night.”

The voice was that of Matthew Monahan, a Commack volunteer firefighter and emergency room nursing assistant at Stony Brook University Hospital. Along with Long Island Rail Road engineer and former EMT Joseph Moscato, Fox was rescued and saved.

On Tuesday, Fox wiped away tears in her hospital room as she met with Monahan.

“I just remember sitting in the car and screaming for my life, like, ‘You need to get me out of here!’” Fox said. “He got there five seconds later. Literally, someone was watching over me.”

Monahan explained his actions when he arrived.

“Alyssa was trapped inside,” he said. “I immediately tried to kick open the windshield.”

Video rolled as Monahan and Moscato separately came upon Fox’s flaming car. She said she had just glanced at her GPS to help her home and the next thing she knew, she had slammed into the tree and her car was on fire.

“I yelled again, ‘Is there anybody in the car?’ And (Monahan) said yes, and I was like, ‘Oh God,’ So I ran to the back, I got my fire extinguisher, I ran out, and I grabbed it like this,” Moscato said, holding the fire extinguisher like a battering ram as he spoke. “And I tried to break the windshield. I hit it about four or five times.”

But that didn’t work. Flames were getting closer, and Fox could not move. Her spine was broken, as were her ribs, clavicle, wrist, and leg.

“The fire started erupting inside the car now, so I came around with the extinguisher and I told Matt, I said, ‘Listen, this is it. This is all I got. If this don’t work,’ I said, ‘We’re in trouble here,” Moscato said.

Monahan decided he had to act, and fast.

“The fire was coming inside from under the dashboard, and I knew that I had to make a quick decision,” he said.

So as Moscato sprayed the last remnants of his fire extinguisher, the flames died down for mere seconds.

“I grabbed her a little bit more and I pulled her out,” Monahan said.

And as the total strangers pulled Fox to safety, her car exploded into a fireball.

“I would not be here,” Fox said. “I think this was a miracle.”

Mostcato had just left work at the LIRR, and his dashboard camera recorded the rescue. Monahan was heading home from the Commack firehouse at the time.

Monahan’s commissioner called the heroic action life-changing for his fire department, as well as the Fox family.

‘”It brought me to tears,” said Commack Fire Commissioner Pat Fazio.

Fox’s mother, Laura Fox, repeated that her daughter thought she would die in the accident.

“She knew that it was going to be it for her if she didn’t get out,” Laura Fox said. “And they came, and they were her saviors.”

Monahan said he did not even worry about his own life being at risk.

“I wasn’t thinking about that,” he said. “I was more concerned about her.”

Alyssa Fox has a long road to recovery ahead, with months of rehab for her spine and legs. But she said she is looking forward to that with love and gratitude to the total strangers who gave her that chance.

Scott Fox celebrated his 50th birthday Tuesday with the gratitude of a father whose daughter had been about 60 seconds away from death.

The young woman had been pulled out of a burning car Saturday by an off-duty Commack volunteer firefighter and a Long Island Rail Road engineer barely a minute before it was engulfed by flames.

“She’s feeling good. She’s happy to be alive,” said Fox, of Seaford, at the bedside of his daughter, Alyssa Marie Fox, 20, in an interview at Stony Brook University Hospital.

The man who pulled her from her car early Saturday was Commack firefighter Matthew Monahan, 26, who has been with the department for eight years and whose father had been a New York City firefighter and Commack volunteer firefighter for 40 years. He was helped by Joseph Moscato, of Centereach, an LIRR engineer who used a handheld fire extinguisher from his car to push back the flames while Monahan pulled the Seaford hairdresser from the car.

Both just happened to be passing by the single-car crash and got out to help.

Monahan, who works as a nursing assistant in the emergency room at Stony Brook, went to Alyssa’s room a second time Tuesday to wish her well — the first time was just after she arrived — and hugged her father.

“It’s the best birthday present ever,” the father told Monahan.

Commack Fire Commissioner Pat Fazio said the accident occurred about 2 a.m. on Route 347 near Townline Road in Hauppauge, and he decided to put out word about the rescue after the parents, Scott Fox and his wife, Laura Fox, sent him a letter saying, “how different our lives would be today if not for these men.”

Monahan recalled: “She was conscious the whole time. I was asking her, ‘Are you OK?’ She was able to answer . . . It was great to have that. Everything aligned right.”

Monahan downplayed any suggestion he was a hero, the parents said in their letter.

“We told him, with all due respect, you are our hero and on that cold March night you did much more than ‘just your job.’ You put yourself in danger for another human being,” the letter read.

Monahan said as he was trying to pull Alyssa from the car, flames began shooting from under the dashboard. Moscato used the last blast from the extinguisher to beat back the flames and Monahan pulled her free.

“If we didn’t get her out then, she wasn’t going to make it,” Moscato told News 12 Long Island. “It bought us that 30 seconds we needed.”

The parents said in the letter that their daughter was “approximately 60 seconds . . . from certain death.”

Monahan said when Alyssa Fox was finally extracted “the first thing she wanted to do was to call her mother. I gave her my phone and she was saying, ‘my mother’s going to kill me.’

“I told her don’t worry. Your mom’s just scared.”

Dr. Steven Sandoval, the emergency room doctor when Alyssa Fox was brought in, said she has “significant injuries to her spine, as well as ankle and lung injuries. She remains stable, serious. She will require intensive physical therapy, but there should be no long-term disability.”
