A passenger van drove off of a Cross County Parkway exit ramp in Yonkers and crashed down onto the Bronx River Parkway on Thursday morning.

The large silver van was bent where it landed on a Jersey barrier more than 12 feet below.  The crash took place around 6:30 a.m.

At least one person was taken away on a stretcher.  They were put onto a stretcher and taken away to a hospital.  Their injuries were unknown.

It's unclear why the van flipped off of the overpass but there is a large bend in that area.  Police continued to investigate.
