Around 5:45 a.m., a tractor-trailer crashed into a livery car on the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway at Morgan Avenue, near the Kosciusko Bridge. The vehicles were Brooklyn-bound, and the collision caused the tractor-trailer to jackknife across the divider and hit a Queens-bound car.
One person is dead and two others are seriously injured. Traffic was initially closed in both directions, but now there's one lane open in each direction.
There are still considerable delays. Officials are investigating how the accident occurred.
