April 8, 2016 Staff Report
Police have released a surveillance video of the sedan that fatally struck a man on 21st Street.
The NYPD are searching for the driver of a silver or grey four door sedan who plowed down a 45-year-old man on Wednesday night.
The victim was walking in the middle of 21st Street, just north of 30th Road, on Wednesday just before 11 pm when he was struck by the sedan. The victim was transported to Elmhurst Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
The vehicle fled the scene and an investigation is still ongoing.
Following the incident, Councilman Costa Constantinides has repeated his calls for the Department of Transportation to install a traffic light at this intersection.
The DOT said it will take another look at the intersection. The agency said that previous studies suggested a light was not needed.
Constantinides, along with Assemblywoman Aravella Simotas, will hold a conference today at 11 am at the intersection, asking anyone with any information about the hit-and-run to come forward.
Police are asking anyone with information to call 1-800-577-TIPS (8477).
