A woman was killed when her SUV crashed into a Queens building and burst into flames late Thursday night, authorities said.
The FDNY said the call came in around 11:50 p.m. for reports of a car fire at 11-05 44th Drive, near 11th Street in Long Island City.
Responding officers round the 58-year-old woman severely injured, lying on the ground outside her vehicle unconscious and unresponsive.
EMS responded and pronounced the woman dead at the scene.
Officials identified the victim as 58-year-old Beverlee Jackson of Brooklyn.
Further investigation by the NYPD determined the woman was driving her Honda CRV at a high speed, heading northbound on 11th Street, when the SUV jumped the sidewalk at the northeast corner of the intersection before crashing into the building.
