A 23-year-old driver was killed after his speeding car hit a tree in Ozone Park around 4 a.m. Sunday morning, police said.

Sadman Sakib, of 75th Street in Woodhaven, had lost control of his 2008 Honda Accord before the crash at South Conduit Avenue and Linden Boulevard.

The collision launched him from the vehicle, according to the NYPD.

First responders found Sakib lying in the roadway with severe head trauma. They pronounced him dead at the scene.

Police said no arrests were made and the investigation is ongoing.

According to the Daily News, Sakib was a computer science student at LaGuardia Community College who also worked two jobs, one as an Amazon delivery worker and another as a pharmacy technician. He was making a delivery for the e-commerce company when he died, the publication said. Sakib and his family are Bangladeshi immigrants.

His death isn’t the only South Queens traffic fatality in recent weeks.

A pedestrian was killed on July 25 when a driver hit him at Woodhaven Boulevard and 91st Avenue.
