KEW GARDENS HILLS — A Kew Gardens Hills livery driver and his passenger were both killed in a multi-vehicle crash on the Hutchinson River Parkway in the Bronx Saturday morning, police said.

Authorities said Ata Noorzi, 51, and Patrick Sheehan, of Larchmont, N.Y., both died around 7 a.m. after a 2003 Ford Explorer SUV struck a median on the northbound-side highway near Orchard Beach Road, careened into a southbound lane and collided with the Lincoln Towncar Noorzi was driving.

A 2014 GMC SUV with a 49-year-old driver and her 15-year-old passenger then collided with the Ford, the NYPD said.After emergency responders arrived on the roadway, Noorzi and Sheehan were pronounced dead at the scene, and the three other people involved in the crash were taken to Jabobi Medical Center in the Bronx, where they were listed in stable condition, police said.

No one was arrested in connection with the accident, and an investigation was ongoing, the NYPD said.

A woman who answered the door at Noorzi’s apartment declined to comment.
