    Seems every couple of days there is some brutal accident that takes out multiple people.

    Three people, including two National Guardsmen who were best friends, were killed and 11 injured in a horrific chain-reaction crash on the Long Island Expressway in Maspeth, Queens, early Wednesday — and sources said it may have been sparked by a high-speed race.

    A speeding 2010 black Infiniti sedan carrying five people hit a divider and spilt in half when the driver, 25-year-old Michael Fabre, lost control on the lower-level eastbound LIE as he tried to exit at Maurice Avenue at 4:20 a.m., police said.

    Fabre, 25, an Army National Guard sergeant from Oakland Gardens, Queens, back-seat passengers Giovanny Sanchez, 24, a guardsman from Brentwood, LI, and Christina Formato, 24, of Franklin Square, LI, were thrown from the car and declared dead at the scene.

    A 2012 Acura TL traveling in the same direction struck the front half of the Infiniti in the left lane.

    Seconds after the initial crash, the driver of a dump truck approaching the scene at high speed slammed on his brakes but could not stop in time, colliding into five other vehicles that had halted behind the initial crash, cops said.

    No one was seriously hurt in the second impact. All survivors from both collisions, including a woman who went into cardiac arrest, were taken to Elmhurst and Queens General hospitals.

    “I saw a dead body lying on the street, then I saw a head sticking out of the Infiniti,” said witness Carlos Rocha, 20, a mechanic working nearby who called 911 after hearing the impacts. “It was a horrible scene.”

    Investigators believe the Infiniti may have been in a speed race with the Acura involved in the wreck, sources said.

    The 27-year-old Acura driver suffered only minor injuries and refused medical attention at the scene.

    Fabre and his friends were heading home from a night out in Manhattan when disaster struck.

    “I’d never think something like that could happen to him,” Fabre’s devastated father, Ismael, said of his son. “He was just a great son, a great son.”

    The guardsman, who aspired to be a city correction officer, was “inseparable” from his buddy Sanchez, relatives said.

    Fabre had just asked his girlfriend’s father for permission to marry Bianca Sagliocca, 22, two weeks earlier.

    “He was just great to me and his family,” Sagliocca, who dated Fabre for four years, said through tears. “It’s bad but I know he’s going to be with me.”

    Fabre’s stepdad, Bill Nagle, 72, called him “a perfect gentleman” and a “shining star,” adding that he’s praying for the young man’s mother.

    “I don’t know if she’ll ever get over this. He was the love of her life,” said Nagle.

    Fabre’s uncle Edwin Rodriguez doubted that his nephew had been speeding, saying, “Michael would drive a little fast sometimes, but people are saying he was going 100 mph. That really wasn’t like him.”

    Formato, the third fatality, had worked as a secretary for the Nassau County Police Department for two years and was planning on entering grad school.

    “She was the sweetest person I know. Sweetest person on Earth,” said cousin Loriane Sima. “[Her parents] couldn’t have asked for a better daughter. This is just too sad.”

    A Nassau cop who worked with Formato called her “an incredible person.”

    The crash caused traffic backups for miles. All lower-level eastbound lanes were closed for four hours between the 48th Street and Maurice Avenue exits.

    The Queens Midtown Tunnel and the connection from the Brooklyn Queens Expressway to the LIE also were temporarily shut down.

    I guess you can say that Infiniti is really totaled, some junk yard will salvage that seat.

    The Southern State Parkway year after year is actually the most deadly roadway in New York State.

    I see these assholes weaving in and out of lanes, going 20 mph over the speed limit all the time on the BQE and other highways in the NYC area. And, once you see one, be prepared for at least 3-4 more following them. If that's what these guys were doing then I'm glad they're dead, fuck them...

    The Connecticut Turnpike from New Haven to Niantic is the most dangerous stretch of highway in America

    I have driven that and have been a passenger. There was this drunk guy weaving in out and lanes, you could see how whacked he was. He had no idea of where he was going. I told the person driving the car I was in to slow down to let this guy get far in front. He was eventually going to be in accident and I wanted to be no part of the chain reaction where cars would be slamming into each other. Naturally no Highway Patrol was anywhere in sight to stop this guy.

    I drove the infamous 666 death highway in New Mexico back in the 90's, in fact they said a majority of the head on collisions happened after dark because of all the drunk Indians that drive it. We were delayed passing through Arizona after hitting the sites and being caught in endless thunderstorms, so of course it was late driving through there. I thought about it every time I saw oncoming head lights as I traveled north, I was ready to swerve at a moments notice.

    Now it was renamed and they did a huge safety crackdown.
