Woman killed in 2 semi-trailer accident in Bronx

A woman was killed early Tuesday in a fire involving two semi-trucks on a Bronx freeway, authorities said.

One of the tractor-trailers, a contract vehicle with U.S. Mail, was traveling south on the Cross Bronx Expressway under University Avenue at about 12:30 a.m. when an unidentified woman driving a Range Rover ran into the truck, police officers said.

Both drivers stayed at the scene and were stopped in the middle lane when a second tractor-trailer hit the Range Rover from behind, police said.

The burned semi-trucks can be seen on the Cross Bronx Expressway below University Avenue, the scene of the fatal accident.

All three vehicles burst into flames.

First responders found the woman in her Range Rover. She was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.
