Se­nior hurt in crash tied to race fiends

New York Daily News - - NEWS - BY JOHN AN­NESE

A 68-year-old man was crit­i­cally hurt Sun­day in a multi-car crash on the New Eng­land Thruway in the Bronx that might have in­volved a pair of stree­trac­ing cars, po­lice said.

A 23-year-old man driv­ing a white BMW coupe and a 31-year-old driv­ing a gray BMW sedan sparked the crash around 7:10 p.m. as they sped north on the Thruway near Bar­tow Ave., in the Co-op City area, said cops.

The white BMW coupe rear-ended a Kia sedan.

Then the Kia sedan struck a Honda SUV, which in turn slammed into the BMW sedan, said cops.

Medics took the 68year-old Kia driver to Ja­cobi Med­i­cal Cen­ter in crit­i­cal con­di­tion. Eight other people suf­fered mi­nor in­juries, and at least two of them went to area hos­pi­tals, au­thor­i­ties said.

Po­lice took both BMW driv­ers into cus­tody.
