A 27-year-old man is in critical condition after the Chrysler he was driving crashed into a double-parked car in Richmond Hill Sunday night, which sent his vehicle careening through an intersection smacking into an oncoming car.

The victim was driving a 2020 Chrysler 300 southbound on 121st Street at around 10:14 p.m. when he struck an unoccupied double-parked Toyota Campa, causing his vehicle to flip.

The man’s car then plowed into a Jeep Wrangler that was stopped at a red light at the intersection of 121st Street and 101st Avenue. The out-of-control vehicle continued traveling, coming to a stop when it struck the front of a Nissan Pathfinder that was going westbound on 101st Avenue with a green traffic signal.

The 27-year-old sustained severe trauma to his head and body and was transported by EMS to Jamaica Hospital Medical Center, where he is listed in critical condition.

The operators and occupants of the Jeep Wrangler and Nissan Pathfinder that were struck remained on the scene and sustained only minor injuries.

The NYPD’s Highway Collision Investigation Squad investigation remains ongoing.
