A woman from Queens, New York, died Sunday from injuries she sustained in a car crash less than a week ago, the Hudson County Prosecutor's Office said Monday.

Alyssa Matos was one of multiple victims injured when two cars collided at 60th and Jefferson streets around 12:30 a.m. Tuesday.

Fernando Batista, a 24-year-old North Bergen man, was driving a 2002 Acura north on Jefferson Street when the car collided with a 2004 Infiniti traveling west on 60th Street, according to West New York police and the county’s Regional Collision Investigation Unit.

Matos was a passenger in Batista’s car and was hospitalized at Jersey City Medical Center in critical condition Tuesday, the prosecutor’s office said.

Batista and another passenger, a 22-year-old man from North Bergen, were hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries.

Richard Henao, a 26-year-old man who was driving the Infiniti, was also hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries. A passenger in his vehicle, a 26-year-old man from Clifton, refused medical attention.

The accident was still under investigation and no charges have been filed, the prosecutor's office said Monday.
