A man crashed his van into a Woodside real estate office on Roosevelt Avenue this morning but walked away unscathed.

The 36-year-old drove the van into Wagner & Kelly Real Estate, located at 60-01 Roosevelt Ave, at around 8:20 a.m., after losing control of the vehicle, according to police.

The driver told police that the gas pedal of the van got pinned down causing him to crash through the front door of the building.

There was nobody inside the premises or walking on the sidewalk when the crash occurred, police said.

The driver did not sustain any injuries although there was damage done to the property.

Witnesses saw the driver’s airbag activated as a result of the incident.

No arrests have been made and police are treating the incident as an accident.

During Covid when nobody was driving the streets were so much safer. Now? Everybody is in a dam hurry, there are more cars with double mufflers or attachments that sound like 5 motorcycles waking people up after midnight and people are getting killed because drivers don’t care that they are driving a weapon full of metal and glass!!.

Queens Streets for LOL

All bicyclists and pedestrians should be licensed and insured, but maybe buildings should too? LOL


Symptoms of covid 19 include confusion and the inability to wake or stay awake. Please drive carefully.


Wagner & Kelly is the biggest slum landlord in the neighborhood, and you won’t find affordable housing there. Their overpriced buildings are full of mice and roaches, and of course the principals of Wagner & Kelly live far away from Woodside, having exploited our community for years. The one positive of COVID is that rentals in the neighborhood have either come down a little or at least not continued to rise, but I am sure that it’s just a matter of time before greedy landlords will be able to exploit again the working class of Woodside.
