A 16-year-old boy was killed in a car crash Thursday when he slammed his car into tree in Glen Oaks.

The teen, Dylan Moreno, was driving northbound on 80th Avenue near 265th Avenue when he lost control of the vehicle and smashed into a tree shortly before 3 p.m., police said.

Moreno was ejected from the car by the impact. Officers found him unconscious and unresponsive on the pavement.

He was rushed to Long Island Jewish Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead, police said.

The teen lived just blocks away from where he crashed.

How does a 16 year old get access to a vehicle? Sad. I question where the adults were in this story.

Uh, sorry to point this out, but 16 year olds are not legally allowed to drive. So the word “tragic” makes no sense here.

$1,000 question – what was a 16 year old doing driving a car? He probably only had a permit and thought a car was a toy and was speeding.


Indeed. Young teens almost always overestimate their ability to control a vehicle. I know I did when I was that age, nearly causing accidents many times until I learned I’m not as capable as I thought myself to be and became a lot more cautious with time. I was lucky. Feel sorry for this poor kid.
