NEW YORK (AP) - Authorities say a man has died following a wrong-way crash on a New York City bridge linking Manhattan and the Bronx.

The New York Police Department says the crash happened just before 11 a.m. Monday. Investigators say a Mitsubishi Galant entered the Willis Avenue Bridge in the wrong direction and hit a Buick Century head-on.

Officers found the 30-year-old driver of the Galant unconscious and unresponsive. He was taken to Lincoln Hospital, where he was later pronounced dead. Authorities didn’t immediately identify the victim.

The Buick’s driver, 28-year-old Peter Diaz-Cargulia, and two passengers were taken to Lincoln Hospital for minor injuries. Police say Diaz-Cargulia was taken into custody for driving with a suspended license. It’s unclear if the Raleigh, North Carolina, man has an attorney.
