Here’s the Mangled Car from Fatal Williamsburg Bridge Crash that Killed Amanda Miner on 21st Birthday [PHOTOS]
This is what’s left of the car that killed the birthday girl on the Williamsburg Bridge.
Two weeks ago, Amanda Miner, an aspiring social worker who was out celebrating her 21st birthday, died in a horrific crash on the Williamsburg Bridge.
Miner had been partying earlier in the evening with the driver, an off-duty traffic cop named Stefan Hoyte, and his colleague Michael Camacho. She later found herself riding in the back seat of an Infiniti sedan that lost control and slammed into a divider at about 3:15 am. The birthday girl was ejected; both vehicle and victim were severed in half. Hoyte, who claimed that he only consumed two beverages, was allegedly driving about 50 to 60 mph in a 35 mph zone. Camacho survived.
Hoyte was subsequently booked on charges of vehicular manslaughter, assault and operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated. He’s currently free on $100,000 bail.
In the meantime, the mangled 2013 Infiniti remains parked outside the 7th Precinct station on Pitt Street. On full display. Looking at the photogenic wreckage, it’s amazing anyone could survive a collision of this caliber.
