A 68-year man is dead after he drove his vehicle into the back of Mercedes Benz last night that was stopped at a red light on Queens Boulevard and 71st Avenue, police said.

The victim, driving a gray Jeep, plowed into the back of the vehicle at around 6:35 p.m. that was stopped in the westbound lane.

When police arrived, the victim was unconscious and unresponsive inside the jeep. He was transported to North Shore Forest Hills Hospital where he was pronounced dead. The man died after going into cardiac arrest, a well-placed source said.

The female motorist was pinned inside her gray Mercedes. Officers pull her out of the vehicle unharmed.

The name of the deceased has yet to be released, pending family notification. The NYPD is still investigating the incident.
