A wrong-way crash on the Tappan Zee Bridge in New York City claimed one person’s life, seriously injured four other motorists and caused massive traffic delays.
According to the New York Times( Wrong-Way Crash on Tappan Zee Bridge Kills One, July 24, 2013), the 69-year-old driver of an S.U.V. was driving south in the northbound lane on the Tappan Zee Bridge around 9pm when his vehicle crashed into a Nissan, causing it to flip several times and come to rest in the middle of the road. The crash facilitated a pileup on the bridge when a third vehicle swerved to avoid the S.U.V., but was in turn hit by a fourth vehicle which swerved to avoid both cars involved in the initial crash. A passenger in the Nissan was killed as a result of the crash, and four other motorists involved were taken to area hospitals for treatment.
