Two people were killed and a child critically injured when an apparently minor rear-end collision cascaded into a deadly multi-vehicle crash. According to a report by CBS New York, two vehicles were initially involved in an accident and the occupants exited their vehicles to exchange information related to the initial accident. Following this initial accident, another vehicle approaching the scene slowed down and was struck from behind by another vehicle. As a result of this second impact, the approaching vehicle was thrown into the area of the initial accident striking those occupants who exited their vehicle causing two deaths and critical injuries to a three-year old child.
