Andrew M. Cuomo
ALBANY — Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo today sent a letter to New York State Department of Transportation Commissioner Joan McDonald, directing that the speed limit on the Scajaquada Expressway in Buffalo be reduced immediately.

A three-year-old boy was killed on Saturday when he was struck by a car that had crashed through the median on the expressway. A 5-year-old girl was also injured and taken to Women and Children's Hospital. The mother of the children also suffered minor injuries.

Cuomo's letter follows in its entirety:
I am deeply saddened to learn of the tragic car crash in Buffalo on Saturday that claimed the life of a young child and severely injured another.

While law enforcement agencies are still investigating the circumstances surrounding this terrible crash, it is clear that immediate action needs to be taken to improve safety for motorists and pedestrians on the portion of the Scajaquada Expressway that passes through Delaware Park.

For this reason, I direct you to immediately lower the speed limit on this section of the roadway to 30 mph, install speed messaging boards, and construct park-appropriate guard rails to protect pedestrians.

These actions are to be taken as ýthe Department of Transportation continues to investigate long-term solutions to prevent further tragedies on this part of the Expressway.

This administration will continue to take every available action we can through engineering, education and enforcement to avoid crashes like this in the future.
