A 20-year-old man died in front of the hotel on Queens Boulevard in Kew Gardens just after 1:10 a.m.



He says that road conditions were very slippery at the time of the crash due to the snow shower.

Officials believe the driver lost control of his car and slammed into the building.

Fortunately, there were no serious injuries to the driver and the building was vacant and under construction.

"It could've been much worse especially with COVID, with dining being outside," Pizzano said.
