A Westchester teenager was killed over the weekend after a driver rolled his BMW on Central Park Avenue, sending her flying from the vehicle.
Members of the Yonkers Police Department were dispatched to the northbound lanes of Central Park Avenue, near Sadore Lane at approximately 7:15 p.m. on Saturday, where there were reports of an accident involving an overturned vehicle.
Upon arrival, Yonkers Police Sgt. Dean Politopoulos said that officers spotted the BMW M5 in the roadway, with a passenger having been ejected from the vehicle further down the road, unconscious and unresponsive. First responders administered medical aid, including CPR and transported 19-year-old Nina Cordero of Yonkers to a local hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
Politopoulos said that two other men also suffered non-life threatening injuries, including the driver of the BMW and another passenger. The driver remains in the hospital and charges against him are pending. His name has not been released.
A preliminary report from investigators from the Detective Division Major Case and Crime Scene Units as well as members of the Traffic Division Accident Reconstruction specialists determined that speed was a contributing factor in the accident, though the investigation is ongoing.
