At least one person was killed and another was critically injured Sunday morning in an accident on the Grand Central Parkway in Queens involving four vehicles, the NYPD said.
Police said there were nine people injured — including eight with “minor” injuries.
The accident happened about 6:30 a.m. on the eastbound side of the roadway near the 188th Street intersection, police said, but authorities had few details and no information about the identities of those involved.
Motorists should expect intermittent closures both eastbound and westbound in the accident area while the crash is being investigated, police said.
“There’s one confirmed deceased and another is critical, but we’re still trying to ascertain the direction of travel and those types of things,” a police spokesman said.
