Motorist Allegedly Causes Crash on Bronx Highway

A motorist faced arrest after he allegedly caused a car collision on a Bronx highway. Five people, including the motorist, were taken to the hospital. The crash occurred on Saturday, October 15 at approximately 2:30 a.m. along the Major Deegan Expressway in the vicinity of West Fordham Road in University Heights, New York.
According to police, 28-year-old Roberto Payneo was driving a white Honda Civic in the southern direction of the highway when he clipped the rear of an 18-wheeler while moving from the right lane to the center lane. The Honda then sped out of control and hit a Volkswagen Passat, which overturned.
Police said that Payneo and a 23-year-old woman were later pulled from the damaged Honda and taken to St. Barnabas Hospital. While Payneo sustained minor injuries in the car crash, his passenger suffered a massive head wound and is in critical condition.
Meanwhile, another 23-year-old woman in the Honda was transported to Lincoln Hospital, where she is currently listed in stable condition. The individuals who occupied the Passat, a 41-year-old man and a 29-year-old woman, were also taken to Lincoln Hospital and are said to be in stable condition.
The truck driver reportedly did not suffer any injuries.
Payneo has been charged with unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle and is awaiting indictment
