A 47-year-old Lyft driver was killed in a car crash early Sunday morning when he was struck by a driver who was allegedly impaired by alcohol, police said.

The ride-share driver had been headed southbound on Fresh Pond Road at the intersection of Elliot Avenue at about 4 a.m. when his 2016 Toyota Rav4 was hit by a 2014 Ford Explorer, the NYPD said.

Surveillance video of the crash from a nearby business showed the Ford Explorer crashing head on into the passenger side of the Toyota Rav4.
