Man Struck by Car on 114th Street

Written by

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.

    News reports are now saying he was in fact killed. He was 75.

    Stay safe out there people.

    I watched them give up on resuscitation at the scene and then some EMT gestured at the crowd and the other one half heartedly kept going as they were putting him in the ambulance. It was so clear that he was already gone an they were just doing it for show. One of the more haunting things I've ever scene.
