A Long Island man died early on Sunday morning on the Grand Central Parkway in Jamaica Estates after his speeding car smashed into a tree, police said.

At approximately 4:27 a.m. on April 16, law enforcement sources said, officers from the 107th Precinct responded to a 911 call about a car crash on the eastbound Grand Central Parkway in the vicinity of 188th Street.

Upon arrival, the officers found the 22-year-old driver, identified as Jose Santos of Uniondale, unconscious and unresponsive inside of a 1996 Honda Civic. EMS responded and pronounced Santos deceased at the scene.

There were no other reported injuries or affected vehicles in the incident.

The NYPD Highway District’s Collision Investigation Squad determined during its investigation that Santos was driving his vehicle at a high rate of speed when he failed to properly navigate the roadway and drove into a tree.

The investigation is ongoing.
