A collision on the Cross Bronx Expressway claimed the life of a 30-year-old man and injured others over the weekend.

It happened at about 1:47 a.m. on Saturday, May 30, when a blue 2014 BMW M5 sedan carrying two passengers and a driver  towards New Haven, allegedly tried cutting over to the Jerome Avenue exit 2A  according to police reports from the 44th Precinct incident.

The car then struck the median near the exit and collided into a pillar shortly after, the NYPD Highway District’s Collision Investigation Squad determined.

Upon arrival, officers discovered the 30-year-old male vehicle operator in an unconscious and unresponsive state with trauma about the body.

He was rushed to Bronx Health Care System where he was pronounced dead.

A 35-year-old male passenger was also to Saint Barnabas Hospital with complaint of bodily pain by EMS personnel in stable condition and a 21-year-old female passenger refused medical attention at the scene, police reported.

 The fatal collision remains under investigation by the NYPD.
