STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. (WPIX) – A Staten Island man is dead following a freak accident in which he was crushed to death by his car as he tried to back out of a parking spot.
Police responded to the scene early Sunday morning on Hylan Boulevard and found 47-year-old Oleg Kantrarovich unconscious with severe trauma to his torso. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Authorities believed Kantarovich had been attempting to park his 2007 Audi at the ‘Black Sea Cafe’ on Staten Island when the SUV inexplicably accelerated and struck a tree.
He was reported to be half in and half out of the vehicle as he attempted to park and somehow lost control, causing the accident.
An investigation into the incident is ongoing.
