NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – A woman is dead after driving the wrong way on the Bruckner Expressway early this morning.

The New York Police Department says Margaret Donnelly, 25, was driving north in the southbound lanes at around 3:10 a.m. near the Middletown Road overpass.

Donnelly was driving a 2011 Hyundai Sonata. She struck a 2010 Mercedes driven by a 37-year-old woman before careening into a tractor-trailer. Donnelly’s car then smashed into the center median.

The 25-year-old driver was taken to Jacobi Hospital where she was pronounced dead.

Four passengers in the tractor-trailer suffered minor injuries.
