YOU READ IT HERE FIRST: A lone occupant killed when her SUV flipped several times on the upper level of the George Washington Bridge around 4 a.m. today was identified for CLIFFVIEW PILOT as 32-year-old Patricia Salcedo of Manhattan.

Salcedo was pronounced dead at the scene, near the New York tower, said Steve Coleman, a spokesman for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.

“We’re still looking into what caused the car to flip,” he told CLIFFVIEW PILOT .

Salcedo was alone when she pulled onto the bridge toward New Jersey, mere blocks from her home.

The upper level was closed completely beginning at 4 a.m. until 6:30, when one lane was opened, Coleman said. The entire upper level was clear by 7:30, and the height of the delays reached about an hour, he said.
