According to multiple tipsters, a man was struck by a hit and run tonight on the northbound side of Broadway at 114th St. That is why several blocks of the street are closed. We called Public Safety, and they explained that the victim was not a student. One tipster heard that the victim was “not expected to make it,” and several others expressed concern for his condition. He’ll be in our prayers.
Update, 9/29, 10:24 am: Gothamist reports that the victim, a 75-year-old, was pronounced dead at St. Lukes, and that “an investigation is ongoing” as to the identity of the driver.
