State police are investigating a two-car accident that killed one person in the early hours of Friday morning.
Troopers responded at about 2:25 a.m. to the scene of the crash, which occurred in Rye on northbound Interstate 95 at mile marker 14, near the entrance
ramp from Interstate 287 eastbound to I-95.
"A 2013 Honda Accord
struck a parked New York State Thruway pickup truck causing the truck to
roll over," police said in a statement around noon Friday. "The Honda then struck a concrete barrier which separates
the ramp from the main road and came to rest."
A male passenger sitting in the front seat of the Honda, one of the three people traveling in the vehicle, was pronounced dead at the scene. The rear passenger was taken to Stamford Hospital in Connecticut with serious, possibly life-threatening injuries, according to police. The drivers' injuries were reportedly non-life-threatening.
Officials are waiting to release the names of those involved until the families have been notified. The investigation is continuing.
The New York State Police Collision Reconstruction Unit and
Troop K's Bureau of Criminal Investigation responded to the crash, as did the New York State Thruway
Authority Traffic Safety.
