A one-car crash in New Hyde Park killed one person and seriously injured another on Friday morning, according to a release from the Nassau County Police Department.

Detectives said a 2008 Chevy Impala struck multiple utility poles while traveling eastbound on Hillside Avenue Friday morning.

The car, according to officials, came to a stop near the intersection of Hillside Avenue and Devonshire Drive.

Photos from the incident show the back of the car elevated several feet off the ground and the front of the car being directly impacted by a tree when officials arrived at the scene.

The driver of the car, a 75-year-old Bellerose man, was pronounced dead upon officers arriving at the scene.  The 76-year-old passenger was transported to a nearby hospital in serious condition. Neither of their names were disclosed in the report.

Officials said there did not appear to be any criminality related to the incident, but the investigation remains ongoing.

Efforts to reach a representative from the county’s police department for further comment on the matter were unavailing.
