While taking the right lane of the ramp towards Jackson Avenue, Kone suddenly suffered from the attack. The vehicle hit a ramp wall before it drove into a town car on the left lane.

Cops arrived at the scene at around 12:20 p.m., where they found Kone unconscious and unresponsive.

EMS workers took the driver to Mt. Sinai Hospital in Queens, where doctors pronounced him dead.

Kone's passenger, identified as a 55-year-old woman, and the driver of the second car, a 33-year-old man, were both taken to Elmhurst General Hospital and were reportedly in stable condition.
