A car wreck on the Bronx River Parkway Tuesday night led to the surprise discovery that the driver had been shot – but it’s not clear if he was shot because of the wreck, or if his being shot caused it.
Police responded just after 9 pm Tuesday to a reported crash on the southbound side of the parkway near East 177th Street. They discovered an Acura sedan and the driver, 25-year-old Jahwan Joseph of the Bronx, unconscious and with a gunshot wound to the torso.
He was taken to St. Barnabas and pronounced dead there.
Cops say the Acura struck multiple cars before coming to rest.
No weapon was recovered; the investigation is ongoing.
