“Woman killed in crash with 2 tractor-trailers in the Bronx”

A woman was killed in a fiery crash involving two tractor-trailers on a Bronx expressway early Tuesday, authorities said. 

One of the tractor-trailers, a contracted vehicle carrying US mail, was heading south on the Cross Bronx Expressway – underneath University Avenue – around 12:30 a.m. when an unidentified woman driving a Range Rover rear-ended the truck, cops said. 

Both drivers remained at the scene and were stopped in the center lane when a second tractor-trailer slammed into the Range Rover from behind, police said. 

The burned-out tractor-trailers are seen on the Cross Bronx Expressway underneath University Avenue, the scene of the deadly crash.

The impact propelled the SUV partially into the back of the first truck, and caused it to flip over, cops said. 

All three vehicles became engulfed in flames. 

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

Members of the NYPD's Highway Patrol, and FDNY firefighters, are seen at the scene.
