• Mohammed Hossain, 47, was driving his final Lyft passenger when his vehicle was T-boned
  • Hossain had texted his wife, "I'm coming home," moments before the crash

A 47-year-old Lyft driver was fatally struck by an unlicensed driver at a Queens, New York intersection Sunday — moments after he texted his wife that he was coming home.

Mohammed Hossain was driving his final passenger for the day in his 2016 Toyota RAV4 south on Fresh Pond Road in Maspeth when a 2014 Ford Explorer T-Boned his vehicle in the intersection at Eliot Avenue at approximately 3:50 a.m., local newspaper New York Daily News reported, citing police and relatives of the victim.

"The impact was crazy," neighbor Anthony Gonzalez recounted. "The kid had to be going like 80, 90 mph when he hit them."

Medics rushed Hossain to Wyckoff Heights Medical Center, where he later succumbed to his injuries. The father of three, who had immigrated from Bangladesh 12 years ago, had died after suffering trauma to his body, a report by PIX11 indicated.

"He was coming home. He texted his wife, 'I'm coming home right now," Hossain's 28-year-old sister, Rifat Rahman, was quoted as saying by New York Daily News.

Hossain's unnamed 20-year-old passenger suffered only minor injuries from the crash and was taken to Elmhurst Hospital.

The 22-year-old driver of the Explorer, Erik Chimborazo, was taken into police custody following the incident, as per PIX11. He was also taken to a hospital for treatment.

Police charged the Bushwick, Brooklyn resident with vehicular manslaughter, operating a motor vehicle without a license, operating a motor vehicle without an inspection certificate, operating a motor vehicle without insurance and driving while under the influence of alcohol. His arraignment is pending in Queens Criminal Court.

Chimborazo had posted a photo of the Explorer on Facebook on April 11 with the caption, "My baby girl," in Spanish, according to New York Daily News

In response to the incident, a Lyft spokesperson was quoted by PIX11 as saying, "Our hearts are with the driver’s loved ones during this incredibly difficult time, and we are ready to assist law enforcement however we can."
