A 33-year-old New Jersey driver was allegedly drunk and speeding when he caused a four-vehicle crash in Queens that killed his two passengers and left seven others hurt, according to a reports.

A vehicle going westbound on the Grand Central Parkway crashed through a center guardrail into eastbound traffic around 6.30am Sunday.

The Mercedes-Benz then careened into an embankment off the right shoulder, hit two trees and flipped over, police said early Monday.

During the NYPD's investigation of the accident, eastbound lanes were shut down.

Meanwhile, China's aluminum production rose 7.4 percent year-on-year in June to its highest level on records back to 2014. The 6.9 per cent expansion for the second quarter of the year, announced by China today, matched first-quarter growth.

Then, investigators say a 38-year-old woman driving a 2012 Mercedes Benz in the eastbound lane swerved to avoid Shakespeare's BMW and the Nissan Rogue, but her auto "was struck" by Shakespeare's vehicle, causing her to lose control and go up the right shoulder embankment, hitting two trees and rolling the auto onto the driver's side. He was subsequently pronounced dead at the scene, the New York Post reported. The injured were rushed to Jamaica and North Shore University hospitals.

One of the passengers was killed, police say, and at least eight others suffered non life-threatening injuries.

The drivers of the Nissan Rogue and the Nissan Sentra were both taken to NY Hospital of Queens with neck and back pain; they were listed in stable condition. The driver of the Mercedes-Benz complained of right shoulder pain.
