A Queens pileup on Grand Central Parkway killed one and injured eight early Sunday morning near 188th Street.

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

One vehicle traveling eastbound crossed the guardrail into the westbound lane when the crash occurred, police said.

Killed were two of Shakespeare's four passengers, 16-year-old Akeam Grant and 34-year-old Layon Campbell, both of Brooklyn. He was taken to Elmhurst Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. Two are in critical condition, one is in serious, but stable condition and five suffered minor injuries, police said. He was subsequently pronounced dead at the scene, the New York Post reported.
