A multi-car crash on Grand Central Parkway by Jamaica Estates resulted in a death and many injuries Sunday morning, authorities said.

At 6:30 a.m., the multicar crash threw a man, in his 20s, from his auto. Shakespeare's vehicle then hit another SUV, according to police.

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

Killed were two of Shakespeare's four passengers, 16-year-old Akeam Grant and 34-year-old Layon Campbell, both of Brooklyn.

Eight people were taken to North Shore University Hospital and Jamaica Hospital.

One man in his 20s was ejected from his auto and died on the scene, the New York Post reported. Two are in critical condition, one is in serious, but stable condition and five suffered minor injuries, police said. The driver of the Mercedes-Benz complained of right shoulder pain. Additional charges against him include vehicular manslaughter, reckless endangerment and reckless driving.
