Fatal Crash Closes Turnpike

A sizeable chunk of Hempstead Turnpike in Levittown was closed off last Tuesday, after yet another pedestrian was mowed over while crossing the street. 

 

According to police, 81-year-old Robert Chapman Sr. exited a NICE bus at Hempstead Tpke. around 5:45 a.m., and attempted to cross the street. Getting through the first two lanes unscathed, Chapman approached the third lane when he was struck by a 1991 Chevy

Geo Prism. He was pronounced dead at the scene. 

 

The driver, James Taggart, 43, of Levittown was apprehended by police and has been charged with driving while intoxicated. He was arraigned on April 23, at First District Court in Hempstead.

 

Police said Taggart’s car was impounded for safety inspection and that the investigation is ongoing.  

 

News of the fatal accident along the stretch of Hempstead Tpke. that runs through Levittown comes just months after another incident, last February, when a 14-year-old Levittown student suffered multiple injuries from a hit-and-run at the corner of Hempstead Tpke. and Shelter Lane. 

 

According to a spokesperson with the Nassau County Public Information Office, there were no further updates on the police investigation at press time.   

News

It’s been a long time since Nicole Shaw and Chris McCabe first met—years, in fact—but after taking a chance on each other, the couple realized that they were meant to be with

McCabe recently proposing to Shaw at Old Westbury Gardens’ annual Rise of the Jack O’Lanterns after six years of dating. 

 

McCabe, now an NYPD officer, and Shaw, who works for Mill Neck Services for Deaf Adults, met in middle school and developed their friendship through high school, said Shaw. 

The smell of pine, wood and scented candles greet customers with a sense of home as they cross the wooden threshold to the Amish Craft Barn in Seaford. There they will find dolls, birdhouses, quilts, ceramic turkeys, hand-painted Christmas trees, oak furniture and other seasonal and holiday tchotchkes.

 

Massapequa natives Frank and Pam Hoerauf started The Amish Craft Barn & Gift Shoppe 20 years ago after an inspiring visit to Pennsylvania.


Sports

The Island Trees Cross Country teams continue their improvement in 2014. This year the girls’ team has a record of 8-2 and with their victories over Clarke and Wheatley High Schools, they clinched the Division Championship for the first time in Island Trees High School history.

 

The girls are led by senior Captain Angela Brocco who has been rewriting the girl’s record boards. Brocco set the school record for the Warwick Valley 5000 meter course on Sept. 20. 

This season the Girls’ Varsity Soccer Team at Division Avenue has the rare ability to fill every position on the field with a member of the senior class. All 11 seniors have made contributions to the success of this year’s squad.
