A beloved, hardworking nurse in Queens met her tragic fate when she lost control of her car that slammed into a building, ejected her then caught fire early Thursday.
Police identified the victim as 58-year-old Beverlee Jackson. The woman worked overnight at a Queens’s hospital before getting into her car, heading home.
At around midnight, Jackson lost control of her Honda CRV at 11th St. and 44th Drive-in Hunter’s Point, hopped a curb, and crashed into a building.
Jackson was ejected and pinned underneath her car that rapidly burst into fire.
Cops recovered Jackson’s body from the scene, only eight miles away from her home. She was declared dead from severe body trauma.
Landlord and neighbors of the wreck victim described her as a very hardworking nurse that served in Jamaica and during the pandemic.
“She worked at one of the hospitals with the most COVID…She was a kind, sweet lady. She was a church lady. She was a very, very nice lady. I was shocked,” the landlord at her building said.
“She worked a lot of overtime, always working, hardworking. That could have been tiredness when she lost control of the car. That’s sad,” a neighbor said.
