East Williamsburg Driver Killed in Crash With Construction Trailer: NYPD

July 25, 2018 By Nathaly Pesantez

An East Williamsburg man is dead after smashing his car into a construction trailer earlier this month, police announced today.

Esteban Sanchez, 29, plowed his 2006 Infiniti M35 sedan into a stationary construction trailer on Johnson Avenue between Bushwick Avenue and Humboldt Street just after 3 a.m. on June 28, police say.

Responding officers found the car under the construction trailer, after which EMS transported Sanchez, in critical condition and with severe head trauma, to Woodhull Hospital, along with his 39-year-old female passenger who was in stable condition, police say.

In addition, a 30-year-old male who was inside the construction trailer was also sent to the same hospital in stable condition, according to police.

Sanchez, who lived about one block away from the incident’s location, succumbed to his injuries days later on July 2, police say.

No arrests have been made in the case, and the investigation remains ongoing, according to police.
