COLLISION INVESTIGATION - At 1:40 p.m. on May 27, police responded to a call about a car explosion on the eastbound Grand Central parkway at Exit 4 for the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway.

Upon arrival, officers were informed that a 2010 Toyota Highlander was traveling eastbound on the Grand Central Parkway when it ran over a piece of metal in the roadway. The piece of metal caused an ignition of the gas tank. The driver, a 26-year-old male, and a passenger, a 25-year-old female, were able to flee from the vehicle and were transported to New York Hospital Queens in stable condition. The other passenger, identified as Dale Tulloch, 50, of Yonkers, was found dead in the back seat of the vehicle after FDNY personnel extinguished the fire. The investigation is ongoing.
