White Plains police investigate the scene of an accident where three people were killed.

Three Bronx residents were killed in a head-on collision on Mamaroneck Avenue in White Plains Saturday night after an abnormally snowy October day.

Public safety officials were called at approximately 11:18 p.m. on reports of a two-car crash in Mamaroneck Avenue’s northbound lane, according to a press release from Public Safety Commissioner David Chong. They responded to the scene and found that a 1991 Toyota Camry had collided with a 1998 Lexus, and investigation indicates the Camry was driving south in the northbound lane.

The Camry’s driver – 65-year-old Herbert Royster – and two of its three passengers – Aida Royster, 70, and David Guerra, 51 – were taken to White Plains Hospital, where they were declared deceased.

“The investigation is active and we will know more after the Medical Examiner’s report,” Chong said in the press release. “As a matter [consistent] with any tragedy the Department will be working closely with the Medical [Examiner’s] office. Our hearts and prayers go out to all the victims of this horrific event.”

Edgar Guerra, 61, who was sitting in the rear of the Camry, was listed in serious but stable condition after treatment at White Plains Hospital. The driver of the Lexus, 25-year-old Bronx resident Edwardo Huezo, was admitted to the hospital for observation with blunt trauma and lacerations.
