A 39-year-old man is dead after a car crash in front of a residential home on the Queens/Nassau border in Rosedale Sunday morning, according to police.
Reportedly, the accident occurred at 4:55 a.m. in front of a home on Hook Creek Boulevard near Essex Place.
Officers from the 105th Precinct found the driver, Benjamin Louis of 110th Avenue in Queens Village, unconscious and unresponsive with severe trauma about the body. Paramedics pronounced him dead at the scene.
Detectives with the NYPD Collision Investigation Squad determined that Louis, while behind the wheel of a 2001 Acura sedan traveling southbound on Elmont Road, lost control of the vehicle. The sedan then went onto a grass field, smashed through a fence and then collided with the front steps of the Hook Creek Boulevard residence.
The investigation is ongoing.
