The car involved in a single-car accident on Woodhaven Boulevard on April 23.

A one-car crash on Woodhaven Boulevard in Queens early on Monday morning cost a 56-year-old man his life, police said.

Authorities responded to a 911 call at 3:30 a.m. on April 23 of a single-car crash on Woodhaven Boulevard near Eliot Avenue on the Rego Park/Middle Village border.

When officers from the 112th Precinct arrived at the scene, they found 56-year-old Joseph Debrosse, a resident of Freeport, Long Island, unconscious behind the wheel of a 2013 Hyundai sedan, according to law enforcement sources.

Based on information they obtained in a preliminary investigation, police determined that Debrosse was heading northbound on Woodhaven Boulevard when he lost control of the vehicle and struck a utility pole at Alderton Street. The car came to a final rest at the intersection of Woodhaven Boulevard and Eliot Avenue, police said.

Paramedics rushed Debrosse to Elmhurst Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

No other vehicles were involved and no other injuries were reported, police said. The investigation is ongoing.
