A motorist killed in a horrific Queens crash was identified Saturday as a hard-working family man.

Jianhang Zhuo, 40, of Queens, died at the hospital after he wrapped his white 2001 Nissan Sentra around a light pole near the corner of Rockaway and Guy R. Brewer boulevards about 9:30 p.m. Friday, authorities said.




Neighbors said Zhuo was often seen driving his young daughter, who would be strapped in a car seat in the Nissan. One neighbor said Zhou worked as a delivery person for a Chinese restaurant.

According to witnesses to the accident, Zhou was heading east on Rockaway Blvd. before he ran a stoplight and made a left onto Guy R. Brewer Blvd.

Zhou had veered around a tow truck and was crossing oncoming traffic when he was T-boned by a woman driver heading west on Rockaway Blvd. in a 2015 BMW X5.

The mangled Nissan careened toward the curb, where it crashed into a light pole.

Medics rushed Zhuo to Jamaica Hospital, but he could not be saved. The woman in the BMW was also transported to Jamaica Hospital with minor injuries.

No charges were immediately filed.

Zhuo lived with his wife and daughter about 10 miles from the crash site. The grieving wife and little girl were at the home early Saturday evening with three men who were described as Zhuo’s brothers.

As of Wednesday, 26 motorists have been killed in crashes across the five boroughs — a 13% decrease from the 30 motorists who died this time a year earlier, officials said.
