A 33-year-old Ridge man died Friday night after he crashed into a parked car, Suffolk County police said.

Jason Adams was driving a 2005 Ford Lindy’s taxicab on Colgate Street just before 8 p.m., police said, when his cab crashed into a car in a driveway, causing the parked car to slam into another vehicle parked inside a garage.

Responding officers removed Adams from the car and performed rescue efforts, police said. He was then taken to John T. Mather Memorial Hospital in Port Jefferson where he was pronounced dead a short time later, police said.

Detectives believe Adams crashed after experiencing a “medical event,” police said.

Police said nobody else was involved in the crash. The investigation is continuing, police said.
