Glen Nelson – the founder, chair and CEO of commercial and residential development firm Matrix Realty Group – died Sunday after crashing his car into a utility pole in Long Island, according to reports.

The 48-year-old Nelson was driving his Lamborghini Murcielago in the Long Island town of Port Jefferson when it swerved off the road and slammed into the pole. Emergency services crews rushed to the scene and took Nelson to St. Charles Hospital in Port Jefferson, where he was pronounced dead.

There were no other vehicles or injuries involved in the accident, according to the Daily Mail. Suffolk County Police are investigating the cause of the crash.
