A driver is in critical condition and his passenger is dead after a car they were riding in crashed at high speed in South Ozone Park Sunday.
The men – both in their 20s – were traveling eastbound on the Belt Parkway near 150th Street at around 10:30 p.m. when the driver lost control of his 2010 Nissan Altima, according to police.
The vehicle then flipped and plowed into a concrete overpass near the edge of Baisley Pond Park and across from Kennedy Airport, police said.
Police responded to the scene and found the pair inside the wreckage and requiring aid.
They were transferred to Jamaica Hospital Medical Center by EMS where the passenger was pronounced dead. The driver, 20, is listed in critical condition.
The identity of the deceased has yet to be released, pending family notification.
No other injuries have been reported, cops said.
