An out-of-control driver killed two people and cut his own life short in a horrific accident on Avenue U on Saturday, cops said.
Jonathan Ishan-Sade, 21, ran a red light at E. Fifth Street in Sheepshead Bay and collided with 26-year-old Andre Capers-Jones’s Toyota Camry, at 2 am, according to police.
First responders found Ishan-Sade and Capers-Jones dead on the scene, along with Lenora Lavaud, 24, who was riding shotgun in Capers-Jones’s Camry, investigators said.
Three passengers in Ishan-Sade’s Acura were rushed to Lutheran Hospital, with one said to be in critical condition.
The collision ensnared six additional vehicles including a city bus, cops said.
A vigil was held in Capers-Jones’s memory on Saturday evening, where dozens of friends and family laid flowers, placed pictures, and lit candles at the intersection where he lost his life.
Friends described Capers-Jones, who attended Brooklyn College and was a long-time member of the Zeta Beta Tau fraternity, as the life of the party, who always put a smile on the faces of those around him.
“Andre, I would describe him as life,” said Anthony Murdukhayev, a fellow fraternity member and friend of five years. “No matter where he was, or who he was with, he made their night. If Andre came, everybody wore a smile.”
Capers-Jones’s house in Gravesend was only a few blocks away from the scene of the fatal accident, according to Murdukhayev.Reach reporter Colin MIxson at cmixson@cn
