THE BRONX - A major accident shut down the southbound side of the Hutchinson River Parkway right as the morning rush began.

Chopper 12 was overhead after a truck hit an overpass at East Tremont Avenue, causing a two-car collision that backed up traffic for miles. Two people were taken to Jacobi Medical Center, but are expected to be OK.

The Department of Transportation (DOT) says the overpass is one of the most hit in the entire city, even though trucks are not allowed to be driving on the parkway.
