Police say a 53-year-old livery cab driver is dead and a 6-year-old girl is in critical condition after a Bronx car crash so violent it hurled debris across an eight-lane highway. New York State Federation of Taxi Drivers President Fernando Mateo said Saturday that slain driver Gregorio Pimentel was a hardworking, married father of five. He was 53.

Mateo says it's unclear how fast Pimentel was traveling when his cab and a minivan collided on Bruckner Boulevard Friday evening.

The girl was riding in the minivan. Its driver and an adult passenger have been taken to hospitals in serious condition.
