From the NY Post:
One man was killed and another injured this morning after a high-speed crash on a notorious stretch of road in Queens known for drag-racing.
A 2003 black Nissan Maxima was traveling westbound on North Conduit Avenue near 78th Street in Ozone Park about 10 a.m. when the driver lost control of the vehicle near a bend in the road, slammed into a light pole and toppling it, causing the car to overturn and rest on its roof, witnesses said.
The driver, Geraud Gray, 24, was pronounced dead at the scene. His 18-year-old passenger was taken to Brookdale hospital where he was listed in stable condition, police said.
A police source estimated that the car was traveling in excess of 90 mph.
Neighbors said racing on the three-lane strip, on the border between Brooklyn and Queens, is nothing new.
Fatal drag racing incidents this week in Brooklyn and on Long Island as well.
