RYE, N.Y. (CBSNewYork/AP) — Two people were killed in a multi-vehicle crash on the New England Thruway in Rye on Monday afternoon, police said.
As CBS2’s Lou Young reported, the fatalities occurred during the second of two accidents on an elevated section of Interstate 95 where it merges with I-287.
New York State Police said the accident was definitely linked to slick road conditions from the ongoing storm, and involved a minivan and a small transport bus headed north.
State Police Troop T Commander Capt. Richard Mazzone said the driver from the first accident were out of their vehicles when tragedy struck just after 2 p.m.
