GREENBURGH, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) – A single-car crash left four people dead early Sunday in the Westchester County municipality of Greenburgh.
As CBS 2’s Steve Langford reported, police said the car slammed head-on into an overpass and burst into flames around 5:30 a.m. on the Sprain Brook Parkway at Jackson Avenue.
The rented 2013 gray Volkswagen Golf was headed north on the parkway at high rate of speed, when its driver suddenly lost control, police said. The vehicle jumped the middle barrier and slammed head-on into the concrete bridge abutment at the Underhill Road overpass, and then burst into flames.
“I heard this loud crash and I thought it was a tree crashing on to my house,” a neighbor said.
The car was being driven by Bruno Vaccarezza, 19, of Cos Cob, Conn., police said. Vaccarezza had three passengers, all between the ages of 18 and 20, police said.
