    File: Whitestone Bridge

    A driver crashed into two other cars while having a fatal heart attack on the Whitestone Bridge Tuesday morning, police say.

    The 50-year-old driver was having the attack when he sideswiped a car and rear-ended another on the Queens-bound side of the Whitestone Bridge, according to police. 

    He was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver's identity hasn't been released. 

    The other drivers were OK; one refused medical attention and the other was taken to a local hospital with minor injuries.

    The crash caused heavy delays on the bridge during the Tuesday morning rush. It has since cleared.
