A woman was killed yesterday morning in the Bronx after a drunk driver struck the livery cab she was riding in. The driver was arrested.

Police say that just after 8 a.m. on January 1, they received a call about a collision at Cross Bronx Expressway and Rosedale Avenue. When officers got to the scene, they determined that a 2004 Mercury Marquis livery cab had been at the intersection, facing westbound on the Cross Bronx Expressway Service Road and waiting for a red light, when a 2011 Dodge Charger going west on the CBE struck the cab from behind.

Livery cab passenger Pamela Pimental, 27, was pronounced dead at Jacobi Hospital while the 54-year-old driver was taken to Einstein Hospital in stable condition.

The Charger's driver, Hernan Vega, was also taken to Jacobi Hospital—and he was charged with vehicular manslaughter, criminally negligent homicide and operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated. Vega's two passengers, a 37-year-old woman and a 29-year-old man, were also taken to the hospital with minor injuries.
