A 34-year-old man died in a fiery crash on the Jackie Robinson Parkway Monday night.
The man, who had a female passenger in the vehicle, was driving a 2008 Infiniti sedan westbound on the parkway near the Forest Park Drive exit around 10:47 p.m. when he drove into a center median barrier, police said.
The car continued moving forward, struck a tree and then burst into flames, according to the NYPD investigation.
The woman, 30, who was riding in the front passenger seat was able to escape the vehicle, while the driver remained inside, police said.
The FDNY extinguished the fire and EMS pronounced the 34-year-old dead at the scene. EMS rushed the woman to Jamaica Hospital Medical Center in stable condition, for back pain.
The identity of the deceased is pending proper family notification.
