Sunday, three people were killed in separate accidents in New York City. Two of them were teenagers riding in BMWs.
Ronish Kush, who was 16, was thrown from a 2011 BMW going too fast around 10:45 p.m. Sunday. The driver lost control of the car, hit a median, and flipped it over on the Belt Parkway near Farmers Boulevard in Springfield Gardens, Queens.
Police said that he was found dead at the scene.
Sukhmani Singh, who was 18, was taken to Jamaica Hospital Medical Center, where he was also pronounced dead. The driver, who was 19 years old, was taken to the same hospital and is doing well.
Based on what they know so far, investigators think speed was a factor in the deadly crash. Nathaniel Knight, 40, was killed on the FDR Drive near East 55th Street in Manhattan about 15 minutes before. He was riding an electric motorcycle at the time.
