A man is dead after losing control of his vehicle and smashing into a tree on the Long Island Expressway in Flushing early Wednesday.

The victim was driving westbound on the LIE — just before the Kissena Boulevard overpass — when he lost control of his 2008 Subaru Legacy at around 4 a.m. and veered onto the right side shoulder of the expressway before plowing into a tree, according to police.

Police arrived on the scene shortly afterward and discovered the man unconscious and unresponsive inside the car with severe body trauma. EMS pronounced the man dead at the scene.

The NYPD said that it has not yet identified the victim. Police believe the man is Hispanic and aged in his 20s or 30s.

The investigation is ongoing.

Op-ed: Congestion pricing would do much more harm than good for New Yorkers

Jun. 11, 2024 By Assemblymember David I. Weprin

Like many residents throughout the five boroughs and across the New York Metro Area, I was pleasantly surprised by Governor Kathy Hochul’s decision to “indefinitely pause” the implementation of Congestion Pricing. Rather than seeing this as a cynical calculation, as some have alleged, I see the Governor’s decision as a deeply pragmatic response to the crescendo of public concerns that I and many others have raised for years. As the countdown to the June 30 implementation date neared, everyday New Yorkers did what we do best: we spoke up for ourselves and said we won’t accept a bad deal! I applaud Governor Hochul for having the courage not just to listen to us but to take a tough stand against this misguided policy.
