QUEENS, NEW YORK, NY – Police said a car accident in Queens early Sunday morning left one person dead and another injured, reports the New York Post.

According to the NYPD, 28-year-old Terrell Lumpkin was driving an Infiniti C37 on Guy R. Brewer Boulevard in Jamaica at a high rate of speed when he lost control of the vehicle shortly after midnight.
