A man is dead after losing control of his vehicle and smashing into a tree on the Long Island Expressway in Flushing early Wednesday.

The victim was driving westbound on the LIE — just before the Kissena Boulevard overpass — when he lost control of his 2008 Subaru Legacy at around 4 a.m. and veered onto the right side shoulder of the expressway before plowing into a tree, according to police.

Police arrived on the scene shortly afterward and discovered the man unconscious and unresponsive inside the car with severe body trauma. EMS pronounced the man dead at the scene.

The NYPD said that it has not yet identified the victim. Police believe the man is Hispanic and aged in his 20s or 30s.

The investigation is ongoing.
