Tess Kuhlmann, a graduate of St. Francis de Sales Catholic Academy’s class of 2021, was reportedly engaged in a car accident.
According to the NYPD, the bus was near the Hempstead Avenue exit and heading north on the Cross Island Parkway in Queens when the incident happened on Wednesday night.
When the latches broke, Tess Kuhlmann was presumably leaning on an emergency window and could leave the bus. The cops have supplied this information. There were 12 other young people on the party bus at the time of the crash.
Kuhlmann was sent to North Shore University Hospital with extensive brain injuries, where her condition was reported as critical.
The motorist is being issued several summonses, and the Highway Unit of the New York Police Department is investigating further to see whether alcohol was a factor in the collision.
Everyone is welcome to attend the St. Francis de Sales Parish mass at 7 o’clock and pray for Tess’s recovery.
