WILLIAMSBRIDGE, The Bronx – A man is dead, another one is fighting for his life after a livery cab driver jumped a curb and hit a wall before an entrance ramp into the Bronx River Parkway, police said.

A man, 22, driving a Honda Accord with a 25-year-old passenger inside slammed into a wall on the East Gun Hill Road northbound entrance ramp before the Bronx River Parkway at about 4 a.m., police said.
