A Far Rockaway man is dead after a serious car wreck on Conduit Boulevard late Saturday night.

At around 10:10 p.m. on Saturday, police from the 106th Precinct responded to a 911 call of a car accident on the eastbound side of Conduit Boulevard in Lindenwood near the intersection with Linden Boulevard. Police say when they arrived, they found a white Toyota Camry had struck a tree at the location.

EMS extracted the driver of the vehicle, 61-year-old Winston Joseph of Far Rockaway, and took him to Jamaica Hospital Medical Center. He was pronounced dead on arrival.

According to police, Joseph was traveling eastbound on the Conduit from Brooklyn when he apparently lost control of the vehicle and struck the tree. The crash occurred just on the Queens side of the border with Brooklyn. There were no other vehicles involved in the accident and no other injuries were reported. Police say they do not suspect any criminality in the incident.

The investigation is ongoing.
