A man is dead after a suspected drunk-driver slammed into his car in Kew Gardens Hills early Friday.
Daniel Crawford, 52, was driving a gray Toyota Camry at the Union Turnpike and Parsons Boulevard intersection at around 4:15 a.m. when the driver of a Mercedes Benz sedan plowed into his car, according to police.
Crawford, a New Jersey resident, was driving southbound on Parsons Boulevard and was struck by the Mercedes upon entering the Union Turnpike intersection. The Mercedes – which was traveling eastbound on Union Turnpike – struck the right-hand side of Crawford’s Toyota.
The Mercedes driver, a 22 year-old-man, then lost control of his vehicle and hit a parked Ford Fusion which was unoccupied.
Crawford was transferred to Queens Hospital Center where he was pronounced dead, police said.
The Mercedes driver was taken into custody on suspicion of driving while intoxicated, according to police.
He has not been arrested and charges are still pending.
