by SpeedLux

A single-car crash in New Hyde Park killed one person and seriously injured another on Friday morning, according to Nassau County Police Department.

Detectives said a 2008 Chevrolet Impala struck multiple utility poles while moving eastbound on Hillside Avenue Friday morning.

The car came to a stop close to the intersection of Hillside Avenue and Devonshire Drive.

Photos from the incident reveal the back of the car elevated several feet off the ground and the front of the vehicle being directly affected by a tree when officials attended the scene.

The driver of the car, a 75-year-old Bellerose man, was declared dead after the arrival of officers at the scene.  The 76-year-old passenger was taken to a nearby hospital in serious condition. Their names were not revealed in the report.

Officials said there might be no relation to any criminality with the incident, but the investigation is currently ongoing.
