A motorist who apparently drove on the Tappan Zee Bridge the wrong way—traveling south on a northbound lane—caused a crash with four other vehicles, killing one of the other cars' passengers and injuring three others plus himself.

According to the Journal News, a Ford Explorer drove the wrong way and hit a Nissan sedan. Then three other cars piled up. My Fox NY reports, "The Nissan flipped over before landing on its roof in the middle lane, said police. Another driver managed to swerve away from [the Explorer], but hit the overturned Nissan. A fourth vehicle rear-ended the flipped over vehicle, according to a police report."

The Explorer's driver, Michael Schechel, 69, who was also hospitalized, entered the NY State Thruway via Exits 10, 11 or 12. No charges have been filed yet.

The crash, at 9 p.m., closed down the northbound lanes and with the southbound lanes limited due to construction, there were delays for hours. The bridge wasn't fully reopened until 4 a.m.
