A crash in Astoria on Sunday left one person dead and six hurt, including three children and a pedestrian, after the driver had a medical episode moments before the accident, cops said.

The car, a Kia Sedona, was driving westbound on 35th Avenue near 21st Street at about 4:45 p.m. when it struck  a curb and fire hydrant before coming to rest on its passenger side on the sidewalk, according to police.

The driver, 45-year-old Anthony Boyd, was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, authorities said.

A pedestrian, a 72-year-old woman who was struck by debris, was also taken to Mount Sinai in stable condition.

Five of the vehicle’s passengers, a 44-year-old and 28-year-old woman, and three young boys, ages 10, 6 and 1, were transported to Elmhurst Hospital in stable condition, cops said.

Police said they are still investigating the accident and what exactly happened to the man before the Kia Sedona crashed.
