1 person dead, 1 in hospital after a car left Hutchinson River Parkway and entered a Bronx home. 

EASTCHESTER– One person is dead and another is in the hospital after a car crashed into a home in the Eastchester neighborhood of The Bronx.

A black Mercedes-Benz was traveling southbound on I-95 and left the highway at a high rate of speed, according to police.

That’s when the driver lost control.

The car went flying off the exit ramp, went through a row of bushes and landed 50 feet away slamming into a house on Pelham Bay Park West.

“I was like this is a movie what’s going on,” said a witness.

The man driving the vehicle was not wearing a seat belt and was thrown from the car. EMS pronounced him dead at the scene.

A woman in the passenger seat was wearing a seat belt and only suffered a broken leg.

“She was just crying,” a witness said. “She got out of the car and she was crying.”

The house the car hit is in a small neighborhood near the Westchester County line.

The exit ramp connects the south side of I-95 with the southbound lanes of Hutchinson River Avenue.

Neighbors say it’s not the first time a car has lost control on the ramp and gone flying into nearby bushes.

Police are still investigating whether drugs or alcohol were a factor.

But researchers say one thing is clear: If the driver had been wearing a seatbelt, he very likely could have survived.
