One person was killed Friday afternoon after two vehicles collided on the Clearview Expressway in Bayside, the NYPD said.

Police said a 51-year-old female was driving a blue 2007 Dodge sedan northbound on the Clearview, at Northern Boulevard, around 12:40 p.m. when her car collided with a tow truck. The woman was pronounced dead at the scene, authorities said.

The driver of the tow truck was taken to North Shore-LIJ, where he was in stable condition, according to police.

Police had not yet determined in which direction the tow truck was traveling and were still investigating how the two vehicles collided, the NYPD said Friday afternoon.

The woman’s identity was being withheld until her family could be notified, police said.
