HEAD ON COLLISION on the LIE – driving on wrong side of road kills driver

A 23-year-old man driving east in the westbound lanes of the Long Island Expressway just east of Exit 41 was killed early Sunday after he crashed into another car, then hit a median, Nassau police said. Two people were injured, a 24-year-old woman who was riding in the man’s car and the 49-year-old man whose car was hit.

The driver of the other car, Joe DeGuardia a 49-year-old man, was taken to a hospital in guarded but stable condition, police said.

For a split second, Joe DeGuardia thought he was dead.  The boxing promoter’s Mercedes-Benz had just been hit head-on early Sunday by a wrong-way driver on the Long Island Expressway. The car he had purchased just two weeks before was spinning out of control, and DeGuardia was drifting in and out of consciousness.

Through it all, he thought of his children.
