SOUTH OZONE PARK — One woman died, while one adult and several children were injured after a three-vehicle collision Tuesday morning in South Ozone Park, police said.

Around 7:20 a.m. police officers responded to a vehicle accident near South Conduit Avenue and 103rd Street.

Police said that a 2003 Black GMC Envoy SUV was traveling north to south on 130th Street when it collided with a 1995 Green Chrysler that was traveling west to east on South Conduit Avenue. The impact of the two vehicles slamming into one another forced the Chrysler to spin out of control and collide with a 2015 white box truck that was traveling west to east on South Conduit Avenue, police said.

The 30-year-old woman driving the Chrysler was taken to Jamaica Hospital in stable condition. The front passenger, 53-year old Carmen Gonzalez from Greenbush, was pinned beneath the driver’s side of the box truck and taken to Jamaica Hospital, where she was pronounced dead upon arrival.

Police said the driver of the black SUV, a 53-year old female, was transported to Long Island Jewish with seven children between the ages 7-12 to be treated for minor injuries. The SUV driver was carpooling seven kids to nearby PS 124.

The operator of the box truck, a 55-year old man, was treated at the scene.

All drivers remained on the scene and NYPD’s Highway Collision Investigation Squad was continuing to investigate the collision.
