Three men were killed in two separate car crashes on Monday, officials said.
Carlos Diaz, 39, of the Bronx, and his 39-year-old passenger, whose name has not been released, were killed when their white BMW jumped a guardrail and struck a tree on the Grand Central Parkway in East Elmhurst, police said.
The driver was heading toward the exit ramp, but missed the turn into the exit and hit a guardrail near the 111th Street exit. The car flipped over a rail, rolled down an embankment and struck a tree near Astoria and Ditmars Boulevards, police said. Both men were pronounced dead at the scene.
In another crash in Sunnyside, Bruce Lanzer, 53, was killed when a truck collided with his car at Review Avenue and 37th Street around 8 p.m.
Lanzer was taken to Elmhurst Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
The driver of the truck stayed at the scene.
