BROOKLYN - Firefighters are calling it a miracle that no one died in a six-car pileup on Brooklyn-Queens Expressway Thursday. 

The massive wreck snarled traffic during the morning commute, authorities say.

Dozens of firefighters, medics and police officers responded to the scene. 

They used the Jaws of Life and other tools to pull a victim out of a car that had flipped onto its side.

Several people were injured, but authorities say they're all expected to be OK.
