A stretch of the northbound Palisades Parkway in North Rockland was closed for hours yesterday as State Police reportedly were dealing with yet another fatal accident in just the last few days. Sunday afternoon’s incident just before Lake Welch Drive exit 16 involved a pickup truck that reportedly struck a tree, knocking it over and into the car, trapping the truck’s occupants. The New York Post says one was killed and two others hospitalized.
Another crash tied up traffic Friday morning on the southbound side of the Palisades near Willow Grove Road exit 14. On Thursday morning, a Spring Valley man was killed after driving the wrong way on the Palisades and crashing head-on into an oncoming car near Seven Lakes Drive exit 18.
