A Springfield man was killed early Wednesday morning in New York City in an accident involving two tractor-trailers.
Just before 5:30 a.m. 35-year-old Jose Duran was driving on the Cross Bronx Expressway when a manhole cover went through the front windshield of his vehicle, striking him in the head.
That caused his truck to crash into another tractor-trailer in the lane next to his.
Duran became pinned inside his vehicle.
He was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.
The other driver was uninjured.
The accident is under investigation.
