Four-Car Collision Kills One and Injures Seven in Upper Manhattan

One person was killed and seven others injured in a four-car collision in Upper Manhattan early Sunday morning. Among those injured was a 12-year-old boy.

The Daily News reports that a silver Volkswagen GTI smashed into a black Chrysler 300 after it came barreling down Marble Hill Avenue and tried to squeeze between two cars stopped at a red light at West 228th Street in Marble Hill shortly after 5 a.m. The Volkswagen then pinballed into a red Nissan Maxima, ripping the passenger side rear wheel off of the Nissan, Michael Duran told Daily News. Duran was translating for the Nissan’s driver, who gave his name only as Rene.

"The Chrysler and the Nissan were standing parallel at the red light and the silver car tried to pass in between," Duran said.

The force of the collision knocked the Chrysler and Nissan across the intersection and into an oncoming Ford Taurus, Rene, whose wife and 12-year-old son were also in the car, told Daily News.

"The Volkswagen must have been going at least 80 mph," Duran said. "I'm still trying to understand what (the driver) was thinking."

Emergency responders rushed the Volkswagen driver, 54-year-old William Hay, to Columbia University Medical Center where he later died. Another passenger in the Volkswagen and six individuals from the other cars were taken to St. Barnabas Hospital in stable condition, Duran and a Fire Department of New York (FDNY) official told Daily News.

That's a really harsh car accident. I sometimes wonder how is it even possible to happen in the city center.
