A 60-year-old man died Wednesday while making a U-turn on Rockaway Boulevard in Springfield Gardens, police said.

A 60-year-old Long Island man died early Wednesday morning after colliding with another car while making a U-turn at a Springfield Gardens intersection, according to police.

The fatal accident occurred at 1:21 a.m. at the intersection of Rockaway and International Airport Center boulevards, about a mile west of Brookville Boulevard.

Police said Donald Angrum of Hempstead, Long Island was behind the wheel of a 2015 Hyundai Elantra traveling eastbound on Rockaway Boulevard when he decided to make a U-turn onto the westbound lanes.

As he did so, his vehicle was struck in the rear by a 2005 Chevrolet Impala operated by a 41-year-old man traveling westbound on Rockaway Boulevard, authorities said.

Officers from the 105th Precinct and EMS units responded to the scene. Both drivers sustained head and back injuries and were brought to Jamaica Hospital. Angrum died at the medical center a short time later; the 41-year-old driver was listed in stable condition.

No arrests have been made and the investigation is ongoing.
