An 88-year-old pedestrian was struck by a car at an Astoria intersection on Friday and was declared dead the next day.
Miguel Hernandez, who was a few blocks away from his 33rd Street home, was crossing Broadway at Crescent Street on Jan. 11 when he was hit by a 2016 Toyota sedan around 3:15 p.m.
The driver, a 40-year-old man, was driving along Crescent Street–a one-way southbound street–when he hit Hernandez. The motorist remained on the scene of the crash, according to police.
Emergency responders found Hernandez semi-conscious with head injuries. He was transported to Elmhurst Hospital, where he died on Jan. 12.
There are currently no arrests and the investigation remains ongoing.
