Driver Dies On Ocean Parkway As Car Hits Tree - 2 Males Injured In Accident


By Geoffey Croft

A 20-year-old driver from Brooklyn died when he lost control of his car and stuck a tree on Ocean Parkway and Ave J.  NYC Park Advocates has learned.

Zahurul Alam was driving a 2001 Lexus traveling northbound with two other passengers inside,  ages 20 and 23 when the accident occured.

The two males survived the incident and were transported to Lutheran Hospital in stable condition according to the NYPD. 

The accident occurred this morning at 2:45am. 

Police said the car was "most likely" traveling at a high speed at the time of the crash. 

Last year the Tri-State Transportation Campaign designated Ocean Parkway as Brooklyn's most dangerous roadway for pedestrians in a study that covered 2009 to 2011.  

Ocean Parkway had the highest number of traffic fatalities involving pedestrians than any other street in the borough.
