The twenty-year-old driver crashed into overpass support on the eastbound Belt Parkway near 150th St. The accident took place on the edge of Baisley Pond Park and across from Kennedy Airport at about 11 p.m. on November 29, according to the police. The vehicle flipped over in the crash.

Speeding is one of the top reasons for auto accidents in New York. Losing control over the vehicle often leads to the inability to stop on time. Often speeding leads to rear-end crashes, or colliding with an object.
