Greek-American George Tyras Killed in Tragic Car Accident in the Bronx

NEW YORK – Greek-American George Tyras, son of the well-known businessman Mike Tyras, died tragically in a horrible car accident that took place in the Bronx in the early hours of Friday, May 21.

According to NBC New York, it all happened just before 12:30 AM on the Major Deegan Expressway, when the BMW in which Tyras was driving with a woman – for whom the details have not yet been released- crashed into the back of a tractor trailer belonging to the company Whole Foods. The two young people were killed instantly.

"It was something unexpected, sudden, there are no words of consolation for the family," Kassian Society President George Mastromanolis, who knows the Tyras family as well as the deceased.

"It is very difficult for us. George was an active member of the youth of our Society, while he also performed music at our events. We cannot believe it, we had other incidents, we lost so many people in last 2-3 months," said Mr. Mastromanolis.
