Taxi driver and tourist passenger killed in three-vehicle crash

Posted: Updated: June 2, 2012 09:03 PM EDT

A New York City cabbie and one of two tourists who were his passengers were killed early Saturday in a three-vehicle smashup. 

Mohammad Hussain, 46, was driving 60-year-old Utah resident Suzanne Nicholson to Manhattan from Kennedy Airport at around 12:30 a.m. when the cab rear-ended a 1995 Porsche on the Long Island Expressway, police said. 

The taxi then rolled over on to its roof and was hit by a Mack garbage truck, which was unable to stop on the rain-slicked roadway. 

Hussain and Nicholson were both pronounced dead at Elmhurst Hospital in Queens. 

Nicholson's 11-year-old grandson suffered a broken rib in the accident and was listed in stable condition Saturday afternoon at Elmhurst. 

The 33-year-old driver of the Porsche and the 61-year-old driver of the garbage truck were not hurt. 

Police do not suspect any criminality in the accident.

    It appears the subway bedbug problem we've been reporting is getting worse. Commuters already have to contend with sweltering platforms, scurrying rats and packed train cars, and now there's another transit woe: fear of bedbugs.
