ASTORIA — A Queens man died four days after being injured in a two-car collision that sent his vehicle crashing into a subway support column, according to the NYPD.

Mohamed Nada, 62, died Sunday at Elmhurst Hospital, where he was being treated following the March 1 crash in Astoria that took place just blocks from his home, police said.

Nada was driving his 2011 Volkswagon Jetta east on 35th Avenue shortly after 5 p.m. when he was hit by a 22-year-old man in a 2003 Ford Taurus who was heading south on 31st Street, authorities said.

The driver of the Ford Taurus was trying to pass another car on the roadway, crossing over into the northbound lane of 31st Street, then striking Nada's car at the intersection of 35th Avenue, according to police.

The impact sent Nada's car careening into a train stanchion and an empty parked car, police said.

There have been no arrests, according to the NYPD, which is continuing to investigate the incident.
