A cybersecurity expert is in critical condition after a crash involving a Big Data software engineer, the NYPD confirmed to Breitbart News.
A crash involving two cars left a 31-year-old cybersecurity expert with serious injuries.
The NYPD says the driver of the white Nissan Pathfinder was taken to Bellevue Hospital where he is in serious condition, and the other passenger was treated and released.
The driver of a red sedan was taken by ambulance to Manhattan Hospital, where he was also in serious but stable condition.
NYPD said the suspect vehicle is a gray Toyota 4Runner with New York license plates.
The SUV was traveling south on Third Avenue near West 57th Street, shortly after 8 p.m.
The two vehicles were traveling at a speed of approximately 80 miles per hour when they crashed, according to a statement from the NYPD.
The collision occurred in a bike lane.
The car that crashed is a grey Toyota 4runner with New Jersey license plates, the statement said.
The other vehicle that crashed was a red Nissan Pathfinder with New Hampshire license plates that were traveling north on West 57 Street near West 61st Street.
The red Nissan was not traveling southbound.
It was traveling eastbound, according the statement.
The crash scene is located at Third Avenue and West 57 St. The Nissan Pathfinder driver was pronounced dead at the scene, the police statement said, and a vehicle-related investigation is underway.
The suspect vehicle, a grey Nissan Pathfinder, was not involved in the crash, the Police Department said.
It did not give a vehicle description.
Police have not said why the vehicle was traveling northbound on West 59th Street.
Earlier this month, a man was killed and another person was seriously injured when a car slammed into them when they were heading northbound in Brooklyn.
The vehicles, which were heading westbound on Broadway, were traveling about 65 mph when they collided, according a report from the New York Post.
The victims were both pedestrians.
The investigation is ongoing, the Post said.
