A Borough Park man died in a four-car crash in Kensington on Monday, police said.
Jose Hoffman, 56, was driving near Ditmas Avenue and Ocean Parkway when he hit another vehicle at 10:13 am, according to the authorities. The crash came to involve two other cars and also injured a 58-year-old woman, officers said.
Emergency responders transported Hoffman to Maimonides Medical Center, where a doctor pronounced him dead on arrival, an NYPD spokesman said, adding that Hoffman likely suffered a heart attack while driving.
“We believe at this point the DOA had some type of episode, went into cardiac arrest while driving,” the officer said.
The Collision Investigation Squad is still investigating the crash, police said.
