An accident on the Long Island Expressway Wednesday left one man dead and three others injured after their car struck a median and overturned, police said.

A 2001 Nissan Xterra was traveling eastbound on the roadway near Parsons Boulevard about 2:15 a.m. when it hit the median, traveled across three traffic lanes, then struck the curb adjacent to the shoulder, before overturning and coming to a rest on its roof, against a tree, cops said.

The front seat passenger, a 26-year-old man, was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.

The driver, a 31-year-old man, was taken to New York Hospital Queens in critical condition with injuries to the head and body, cops said. Two rear seat passengers were also taken to New York Hospital Queens in stable condition, with minor injuries.

The investigation is ongoing.
