Queens, NY - Police say a New Jersey man has been charged in a four-vehicle crash in New York City that left two people dead and seven others injured.


Authorities say 33-year-old Andrew Shakespeare, of Roselle, was driving on Grand Central Parkway in Queens early Sunday when he sideswiped a car and lost control of his SUV.

Police say the sport utility vehicle crossed three lanes and hit another SUV, causing both vehicles to hit a guardrail, cross the parkway and roll over. Shakespeare’s vehicle then hit another SUV.

Killed were two of Shakespeare’s four passengers, 16-year-old Akeam Grant and 34-year-old Layon Campbell, both of Brooklyn.

Shakespeare faces charges including DWI and vehicular manslaughter. It couldn’t be determined if he has a lawyer.

He and six people in the other vehicles were injured.

How do their names indicate shady pasts rather than ethnicity. This one drunk driver inconvenienced thousands yesterday and caused gridlock in Queens for hours.
