YONKERS, N.Y. -- One person was killed and another was seriously injured in a car crash in Yonkers Thursday night, police said.

Police would not identify the deceased victim because they are trying to notify his next of kin. However, they did say he was an adult male resident of the city.

The cause of the crash, which occurred around 9:30 p.m. on Palmer Road near the intersection of Sunnybrook Road, is under investigation, and no arrests had been made, police said.

The road had to be closed for several hours while the accident scene was cleared, police said.

Police did not say which hospital the two victims had been taken to, but a report in lohud.com had it as Jacobi Medical Center in the Bronx.
