Collision on NYC's Belt Parkway leaves woman, 20, dead and two injured

A 20-year-old woman is dead and two men were hurt after an SUV and Access-a-Ride van collided on the Belt Parkway, police said.

The deadly accident occurred around 9:50 a.m. Saturday along the westbound Belt Parkway at Pennsylvania Avenue, cop sources said.

Police said the woman was a passenger in a Chevy Red Trailblazer that lost control and collided with a 2019 Ford Access-a-Ride van. The impact caused the van to overturn, and sent the Trailblazer into a guard rail, cops said.

The woman, who was ejected from the vehicle, suffered “severe head and body trauma” and was pronounced dead at Brookdale Hospital.

The driver of the Trailblazer, a 20-year-old man, and 60-year-old driver of the van, which was not carrying passengers, were also taken to Brookdale with minor injuries, authorities said.
