Woman dies while on phone with mother; brother remains in critical condition, NY Post

Following a pileup on the Cross Bronx Expressway, a Bronx sister and brother were hit by a car, leaving Jennifer Sosa, 20, dead and Golden Gloves champion Pedro Luis Sosa, 19, in critical condition, according to the New York Post. Jennifer Sosa was on the phone with her mother, telling her she was OK, when a Toyota Corolla struck her and her brother, and sent them plunging 75 feet over a concrete barrier.  Nine other vehicles were involved and a total of 14 others had to be treated for minor injuries, in a series of accidents authorities say were caused by slick roads from this weekend’s snowstorm. Pedro Luis Sosa remains in a coma at the Jacobi Medical Center.
