An early morning car accident in Queens on Monday left one man dead, police said.

 

 

According to authorities, a 28-year-old female and a passenger were driving a 2013 white Infinity sedan eastbound along the Belt Parkway at around 4 a.m.

 

She rear-ended the car in front of her — a 2010 Mercedes driven by an 18-year-old man.

 

After striking the Mercedes, the Infinity then overturned near South Conduit Avenue and Brookville Boulevard, officials added.

Police and EMS came on the scene at around 4:15 a.m., rescuing both drivers. However, emergency workers declared the Infinity's passenger, 29-year-old man, dead at the scene.

The driver was taken into custody with charges pending, but authorities said alcohol was likely linked to the deadly accident. Police withheld names of all the persons involved.

The 18-year-old driver was taken to Franklin General Hospital in stable condition.
