BRONX, New York (WABC) -- A car crashed into a wall on the ramp to the Bronx River Parkway Thursday, killing a passenger and critically injuring the driver.
The Honda Accord was southbound on the Bronx River Parkway when the driver apparently lost control attempting to exit at East Gun Hill Road just after 3 a.m.
The vehicle then crashed into a wall along East Gun Hill Road.
A 25-year-old passenger in the front seat was pronounced dead at the hospital.
The 22-year-old driver is in critical condition and in police custody. He was most likely drunk/dragged and speeding. Most drunk driver accidents happen in the early a.m. hours, like this case.
