Broadway Flushing man found dead in backseat of car: NYPD

By Joe Anuta

A man who slept off a night of drinking in the backseat of his car was found dead in the Broadway section of Flushing Saturday, police said.

Ronald Siracuse’s wife found the 50-year-old unresponsive in the backseat of their vehicle, parked near the corner of 32nd Avenue and 160th Street, and called cops about 7 a.m., according to a police source.

The two had been out to a party the night before, and his wife left Siracuse in the car to sleep off the drinks he had consumed after they returned home, the source said.

EMS responded to the 911 call Saturday morning and took Siracuse to Flushing Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, according to the NYPD.

The medical examiner will determine the cause of death.
