Family searches for answers in fatal Bronx River Parkway crash

BAYCHESTER -

The family of an 18-year-old girl killed in a crash on the Bronx River Parkway last week is still searching for answers.

Brianna Jones, the youngest of 13 kids, was killed in a rush-hour crash. Westchester County police say the driver of the other car involved in the accident told them that he was cut off and swerved, causing the crash.

Family members are hoping for a witness to come forward since there are conflicting accounts of what happened.

"We are hearing that he may have been racing with someone or they may have been driving aggressively," says Jessica Jones, Brianna's sister.

Jones' father Donald Jones says he said goodbye to his daughter as he left for errands and that was the last time he saw her.

Family members say Jones wanted to finish school and get a good job. They say she was hoping to become a social worker.

A GoFundMe page has been set up to honor Brianna's life.
