A New York man is dead after his vehicle slammed into the back of a NYC bus in the early morning hours on Monday
At around 4:30 a.m., 23-year-old Luis Angel Duran was coming up behind an MTA bus at the corner of Jamaica and Euclid Avenues in Brooklyn.
It is unclear why, but it appears Duran did not slow his 2003 Honda Accord at all and plowed into the back of the bus, which was stopped at the corner, and hurtled into the nearby BP gas station.
Police say Duran, the son of Dominican parents, was pinned in his vehicle and was pronounced dead at the scene. He was just half a mile from his Cypress Hill home.
The gas station owner spoke with NY Daily News and said he did not believe Duran even tried to slow down, adding, ‘You see the amount of demolition? There’s no skid marks. He never saw it coming.’
Police are still investigating why Duran did not stop.
