RYE, N.Y. -- Hazardous driving conditions on Interstate 95 appear to have contributed to a fatal accident Monday afternoon involving a tractor-trailer in Rye near the Connecticut border, according to state police.
As state police were investigating a truck-car accident just north of Exit 22, a third vehicle lost control on the roadway, striking the two vehicles in the first accident.
Two people were killed as a result of the accidents, according to Trooper Matthew Izbicki, a state police spokesman for Troop T.
All northbound lanes of I-95 in Rye between Exit 21 and 22 will be closed for "quite a while'' due to the collision, Izbicki said.
The identities of the deceased motorists are not expected to be released until next of kin have been notified, he said.
The accident occurred about 1:30 p.m., prompting a call for assistance from the Rye Fire Department.
One motorist was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident, which was at mile marker 14.
A second victim was transported with a police escort to Westchester County Medical Center and was later pronounced dead.
