Driver in Northern State fatal crash arrested, police say

A Queens woman was arrested and charged with vehicular manslaughter and driving while intoxicated after a crash that killed the other driver late Monday on the Northern State Parkway, police said.

Silvia Ibanez, 42, of Arverne was traveling west near Exit 29A in Old Westbury about 10:15 p.m. when her car hit a black 2013 Toyota Camry driven by Juan Collado, 61, of Washington Heights, State Police said Tuesday in a news release.

Collado, who was in the right lane and was hit from behind, died of his injuries; Ibanez, who was driving a black 2010 Toyota RAV4, suffered serious injuries, police said.

Ibanez is being treated at North Shore University Hospital in Manhasset, where she is expected to be arraigned.

State Police urge any witnesses to call Troop L at 631-756-3300.
