Driver killed in crash with Thruway Authority vehicle near Gov. Mario Cuomo Bridge
State police say one person was killed in in a crash Friday near the Gov. Mario Cuomo Bridge.
Police say a van struck a Thruway Authority vehicle in the northbound lane near Exit 11 in Nyack around 7 a.m.
A preliminary investigation at the scene determined a New York State Thruway wrecker was providing traffic control for a disabled vehicle that was on the left shoulder, partially in the left lane. While the disabled vehicle was being loaded by Congers Collision, a 2017 Ram ProMaster cargo van traveling in the left lane rear-ended the Thruway wrecker at a high rate of speed.
The wrecker was unoccupied at the time of the crash. The driver of the Ram cargo van sustained serious injuries and was transported to Nyack Hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.
No other injuries were reported.
