NYPD: Riverhead man dies in LIE crash in Queens

A Riverhead man was killed early Thursday when his van hit a flatbed truck on the Long Island Expressway in Queens, NYPD said.

Andrew Ingordo, 31, of Riverhead, was pronounced dead at the scene after his van hit the truck from behind at about 4:15 a.m. near Exit 32, the Little Neck Parkway.

Police said the driver of the truck was driving westbound when he pulled onto the right shoulder area in an attempt to avoid vehicles in front of him. That's when Ingordo, driving behind the truck, struck the rear of the vehicle.
