A 21-year-old man lost his life early Saturday morning when the car he was riding in crashed into another vehicle, according to police.
At about 2:15 a.m. police from the 105th Precinct responded to a call of a vehicle accident at the intersection of South Conduit Avenue and 177th Street in Jamaica, authorities said.
The officers found four injured people at the collision site.
According to police, a Land Rover was traveling eastbound on South Conduit Avenue when it collided with the driver side of a Nissan Rouge that was stopped at 177th Street. The first car then slid into a third vehicle which was parked and unoccupied; both cars sustained severe damage.
All victims were taken to Jamaica Hospital, according to cops. The driver of the Land Rover, a 20-year-old man, is listed in stable condition while his passenger, 21-year-old Lamont Smart Jr. of Laurelton, sustained severe injuries to his torso and was pronounced dead.
The driver of the second car, a 46-year-old man, and his 50-year-old female passenger are both listed in stable condition with minor injuries.
There have been no arrests and the investigation is ongoing.
