A car collision involving a driver going the wrong-way on the Belt Parkway is suspected to be behind a major accident that occurred earlier this morning.
Eleven drivers were injured at around 6:30 a.m. near exit 5. The collision shut down all east-bound lanes and two west-bound lanes.
Three cars were involved in the pile-up; one was a large white van carrying several passengers. Firefighters and the NYPD were able to get all of the victims out of their cars. Thus far, no deaths have been reported, according to the New York Post.
