Van damned: The other driver, who was operating a Ford van, walked away from the head-on accident with minor injuries.
Wrong way: The deceased motorist was driving his sport-utility vehicle in the wrong lane on Linden Boulevard when he collided with the van.
Fatal force: Paramedics found the Long Island driver unconcious at the scene, and he was later pronounced dead at Brookdale University Hospital.

A 58-year-old man died after smashing his sport-utility vehicle into a van while driving before sunrise in Brownsville on Wednesday.

Long Island resident Oladele Adaramola was traveling in the wrong lane on Linden Boulevard near Rockaway Avenue at 4:08 am when he collided head-on with a Ford van driven by a 73-year-old man, cops said.

Paramedics found Adaramola unconscious when they arrived at the scene, and rushed him to Brookdale University Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, according to police.

The van driver suffered minor injuries, and emergency responders took him to Kings County Hospital for treatment.

The fatal wreck is being investigated by the New York Police Department’s Highway Collision Investigation Squad, authorities said.
