Josh Dweck aka Joshua Dweck has been identified as the victim who died after being involved in a fatal car accident in Ocean Parkway on Wednesday, June 8, 2023. Josh succumbed to the injuries sustained from the fatal crash.
On June 7, a high-speed collision involving a teenage Tesla driver left one pedestrian, age 76, dead, and another person injured.
The NYPD claims that just after 9 p.m., officers were alerted to reports of a significant auto accident near the Avenue M intersection. Officers and emergency personnel found a male pedestrian lying on the ground with significant head and torso injuries when they arrived on the scene.
Rajacic Milorad, a resident of Old Westbury, was taken by emergency personnel to Maimonides Medical Center, where he eventually passed away from his wounds and was declared dead.
The 2021 Tesla driven by a 17-year-old was heading northbound on Ocean Parkway at a very high speed when the driver lost control of the vehicle, according to further investigation by the NYPD’s Highway District’s Collision Inspection Squad.
The teenager then ascended the pavement at Avenue M and Ocean Parkway’s northeast corner, where he tragically struck Milorad.
After striking Milorad, the Tesla driver continued driving without stopping, striking a Department of Transportation traffic signal pole, a parked motorcycle, and a bench in the middle of the road. He then attacked a male victim, age 24, who was also sent to Maimonides Medical Center with minor leg injuries.
Police arrested the teen, who was charged with leaving the scene of an accident resulting in death. The investigation is ongoing.
