Detective Dead After Car Crash With Wrong Way Driver – NYC



An off-duty NYPD detective — who took a day off to spend time with his family — was killed in a car crash after a wrong-way driver rammed into his vehicle in Westchester early Friday, police sources said.

The accident happened around 4 a.m. near route 100B, at the 6 mile marker on the parkway in Greenburgh, cops said.


Authorities said the officer, 46, whose name is being withheld by The Post pending family notification, was pinned in the Honda Pilot SUV.

Investigators noticed his NYPD placard still inside the vehicle, the sources said. A police source said the First Grade detective took the day off to spend time to be with his family.

The man who rammed into him, Efren Moreno, 53, was in a Honda sedan, sources said.

Moreno was put in a medically induced coma at Westchester County Medical Center.

The officer was traveling in the right direction when he was killed, cops said.

All lanes were reopened at about 8:45 a.m.
