A cab driver and a tourist were killed, and an 11-year-old was seriously injured, in a three-car accident on the Long Island Expressway in Queens early this morning. According to police, grandmother Suzanne Nicholson and her 11-year-old grandson had just arrived in JFK from Utah and were headed to Manhattan; their taxi driver lost control during a rainstorm on the LIE near 66th St. in Elmhurst about 12:30 a.m.

The taxi struck the rear of a 1995 grey Porsche—the Porsche rolled onto its driver's side, while the yellow cab flipped toward the right shoulder. A garbage truck was unable to stop and smacked into the taxi. Nicholson and taxi driver Mohammad Hussain were both killed, while the 11-year-old is in stable condition with broken ribs. The garbage truck driver and the 33-year-old man driving the Porsche were not hurt, and no criminality was suspected.
