A motorist is dead after he lost control of his car and struck a tree on the Jackie Robinson Parkway Friday night, according to police.

The 26-year-old man was killed when he failed to properly navigate the roadway while driving a 2013 silver Infiniti G37X westbound on the parkway just before 10 p.m., police said.

The victim, who was from Brooklyn, lost control of the sedan near Metropolitan Avenue before smashing into a tree.

EMS responded to the scene and transported him to Jamaica Hospital Medical Center where he was pronounced dead, police said.

No other vehicles were involved in the incident, cops said.

Police are investigating whether speeding played a role in the collision. The NYPD did not provide any further details.

The victim’s identity has not yet been released, pending family notification.
