Man with gunshot wound dies after crashing car on Staten Island


Police rushed to the scene of a Staten Island car accident on Saturday and found a 26-year-old man dying inside one of the vehicles — from a gunshot wound to his torso.

The man, whose name was not immediately released, was found at 372 Van Duzer St. in Stapleton after 3 p.m., cops said.

He was taken to Richmond University Medical Center, where he died.

The victim appeared to have been shot about a five-minute drive away, in the vicinity of Laurel and Osgood avenues.

He had managed to get into his 2016 Infiniti sedan and drive down Van Duzer Street before crashing, according to cops.

Police taped off Van Duzer Street near Beach Street, where a black car was pushed up against a parked SUV that was badly damaged by the impact.

No arrests have been made. Police continue to investigate the shooting.
