New York man killed in In­ter­state 95 crash

Stamford Advocate (Sunday) - - News - By Tara O'Neill

STAM­FORD — A New Rochelle, N.Y., man was killed in a crash on In­ter­state 95 in Stam­ford that left one woman with se­ri­ous in­juries and shut down north­bound lanes for more than five hours overnight, au­thor­i­ties said.

Tamar Mil­teer, 25, of New Rochelle, N.Y., was killed in the crash, a State Po­lice in­ci­dent re­port said. He was a pas­sen­ger in one of the three cars in­volved in the wreck.

Sy­erra Mcghee, 19, also of New Rochelle, was an­other pas­sen­ger in the car with Mil­teer. State po­lice said she suf­fered sus­pected se­ri­ous in­juries. The re­port in­di­cated Sun­day is her 20th birth­day. A reg­istry list­ing for Mil­teer and Mcghee shows they are ex­pect­ing a baby in Jan. 2019.

Jonathan Mo­rales, 27, of Endi­cott, N.Y., was the driver of the car car­ry­ing Mcghee and Mil­teer. The re­port in­di­cated he suf­fered a sus­pected mi­nor in­jury.

The driver of an­other car, 55-year-old Os­nalba Al­varado, of Bridge­port, suf­fered a pos­si­ble in­jury, the re­port said.

And the two oc­cu­pants in the third car in­volved in the crash — a New Jersey man and a We­ston man — did not have any ap­par­ent in­juries.

The crash was re­ported shortly after 7 p.m. Fri­day and po­lice im­me­di­ately shut down the high­way between Ex­its 8 and 9. Stam­ford po­lice said the high­way re­opened around 12:30 a.m. Satur­day.

The re­port in­di­cated that Al­varado was driv­ing north on I-95 in the left lane of the three avail­able lanes of travel when she started brak­ing for traf­fic ahead of her. The ve­hi­cle be­ing driven by Mo­rales was in the lane be­hind her and also stopped for the traf­fic ahead.

The third car, be­ing driven by Magdy Gir­gis, 41, of Bay­onne, N.J., was also in the left lane of travel but al­legedly failed to stop in time and rear ended the car be­ing driven by Mo­rales, the re­port said.

“It is be­lieved this im­pact pushed (Mo­rales’ car) for­ward, caus­ing it to strike (Al­varado’s car),” the re­port said. “(Al­varado’s car) then en­tered the right shoul­der where it struck the ce­ment bar­rier.”

The re­port said Mil­teer was pro­nounced dead at Stam­ford Hos­pi­tal.

The crash re­mains un­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion by Troop G.
