A 49-year-old New Jersey man is dead after being struck by a vehicle while attempted to cross the Grand Central Parkway on foot in Corona during the early hours Sunday morning.

Luis Saguay, of Wallington, NJ, was hit by a 52-year-old woman driving eastbound in a Mercedes Benz SUV at around 3:15 a.m. while he was attempting to cross the Grand Central Parkway at 41st Avenue.

When police arrived, officers discovered him unconscious and unresponsive lying on the roadway with severe trauma to his body. EMS responded and declared him dead at the scene.

Upon investigation, police determined that Saguay was also hit by a second vehicle after being struck by the Mercedes. The second vehicle was a Mazda sedan, with the driver being a 24-year-old man.

Police believe that Saguay had been walking along the shoulder of the parkway before attempting to cross.

Both drivers remained at the scene and were not injured. There have been no arrests.
