A 50-year-old taxi driver died Wednesday morning after suffering from a medical condition on the Queensboro Bridge, according to police.
The driver, Vardo Kone of the Bronx, was traveling Queens-bound on the bridge’s upper level when he suffered from a medical emergency at about 12:20 am, the police said. He lost consciousness and then struck a wall while on the ramp heading toward Jackson Ave/Northern Boulevard, before going on to hit another Queens-bound cab.
Kone, who had a passenger in his vehicle at the time, was taken to Mount Sinai Queens and pronounced dead, police said.
The passenger and the other cab driver were both taken to Elmhurst General Hospital where they were listed in stable condition.
My condolences to the family. Very sad.
