60-year-old dies after truck crashes into his car in Midtown

A 60-year-old driver was killed in a smash-up with a truck in Midtown this week, cops said.

A 33-year-old man was driving a Western Star trailer truck east on West 34th Street around 8 a.m. Monday when he struck a 2015 Ford Mustang — with Robert Lavanant behind the wheel — heading north on Sixth Avenue, authorities said.

Lavanant, of Midtown East, was rushed to Bellevue Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

A 57-year-old woman riding in his car was taken to the same hospital in stable condition, cops said. Her relationship to Lavanant was unclear.

The truck driver remained on scene and was not arrested, police said.

The NYPD’s Collision Investigation Squad was still probing the crash Tuesday.
