A 29-year-old Nassau County man was killed early Monday morning in what the NYPD is calling an alcohol-related crash.
Police in the 105th Precinct said Kendall Heard of Freeport was a passenger in a 2014 Infiniti sedan being driven east on the Belt Parkway at about 4:15 a.m. by Sharlene Numa, 28, of Roosevelt, LI.
Police said the car was between Springfield and Merrick boulevards when the Infiniti allegedly struck the rear of a 2012 Mercedes being driven by an 18-year-old man.
The Infiniti then overturned in the vicinity of South Conduit Avenue and Brookville Boulevard. EMS transported Heard and Numa to Jamaica Hospital Medical Center, where Heard was pronounced dead. The 18-year-old was taken to Franklin Hospital in Valley Stream, LI in stable condition.
The subsequent NYPD investigation resulted in Numa being taken into police custody, charged with manslaughter, vehicular manslaughter and driving while intoxicated.
Police said the crash remains under investigation.
