According to the authorities, this fatal Bronx car accident occurred yesterday morning at just prior to 6 a.m. An unidentified 20-year-old man was driving an SUV in a southbound direction on the Hutchinson Parkway when he suddenly lost control of his vehicle near Interstate 95. He crashed into a guard rail and bounced off of it only to crash into a Ford sedan being driven by a 50-year-old woman. The woman was killed in the crash and the driver of the SUV was seriously injured.
