YONKERS, N.Y. (77WABC) — An investigation is underway involving a deadly multi vehicle crash which killed a Yonkers police sergeant in Westchester County.

Investigators say the crash happened around 3:30 p.m. Wednesday on Tuckahoe Road at the Sprain Brook Parkway overpass. Reports indicate the 24-year veteran was on-duty driving an unmarked police vehicle, was traveling westbound on Tuckahoe Road when a BMW sedan traveling eastbound lost control and crossed into oncoming traffic, striking the officers car and a Bee-Line bus.

The officer was the only occupant of the unmarked vehicle. He was transported to Jacobi Medical Center in critical condition and later died from his injuries.

The driver of the bus suffered non-life-threatening injuries, and several bus passengers were treated at scene for minor injuries. The driver of the sedan is hospitalized in critical condition.
