WOODBURY - A Utah woman sacrificed her life to protect her grandson during a deadly crash on the Long Island Expressway.

Officials say the cab was crushed by a garbage truck in Queens on Saturday.

Suzanne Nicholson, 60, just arrived from JFK with her 11-year-old grandson.

Police say Nicholson shielded her grandson from the impact of the crash. The little boy survived with broken bones but his grandmother and the cab driver were both killed.
