An Astoria woman died Tuesday from the injuries she sustained from a three-car accident in Kew Gardens Hills on Monday, according to police.
Joann Pacifico, 60, was riding in the back of 2012 Toyota Camry near 141-12 Jewel Avenue on Monday around 4:49 p.m. when the driver of that vehicle suddenly swerved to avoid a 2001 Ford Econoline van, police said.
The Toyota clipped the back of the van as it turned into oncoming traffic and then struck a 2003 Subaru Forester.
Pacifico was taken to New York Presbyterian Hospital, where she was pronounced dead from internal injuries in the early hours Tuesday morning.
All vehicles remained on the scene. The NYPD Collision Investigation Squad is looking into the incident. No arrests have been made.
