A terrible accident in the Bronx: Police believe that an SUV on East Tremont was speeding around 4AM when it crashed into a telephone pole and flipped over. 1010WINS says the vehicle was "ripped apart" at Commonwealth Avenue. Three men were ejected from the SUV and pronounced dead at the scene. A fourth passenger, a woman, died at Jacobi Hospital.

Over 34 million people are expected to be driving 50 miles or more during this Labor Day Weekend. The NY State Police say that it's "one of the state's most hazardous for highway travel, second only to Thanksgiving."
