A 26-year-old man is dead following a three-car collision in Williamsburg early Wednesday.
Alexander Ulloa-Toribio, who lived near the scene of the crash, was killed in a three-car pile-up when his Honda Odyssey crashed into a tree on Grand Street near Manhattan Avenue at 1:10 a.m., police said.
The crash took place after a rear tire blew on a BMW SUV and the driver lost control while traveling westbound on Grand Street, police said. The vehicle crossed into oncoming traffic in the eastbound lane and struck Ulloa-Toribio’s vehicle.
The BMW, driven by a 30-year-old man, then hit another car, a red Honda Element, police said. The BMW and Honda Element both came to a stop, but Ulloa-Toribio’s vehicle slammed into a tree.
First responders found Ulloa-Toribio unconscious and unresponsive with severe body trauma. EMS rushed him to Woodhull Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
The 30-year-old driver of the BMW and his 30-year-old passenger suffered minor injuries and were brought to Bellevue Hospital where they were treated and released.
The 34-year-old driver of the Honda Element refused medical attention.
Police said there are no arrests at this time and the investigation is ongoing.
