Two Struck By Vehicle, One Dead In Brooklyn

Williamsburg - A 35-year-old man was killed and a woman was critically injured when a car plowed into them on Borinquen Place early Thursday and fled the scene, police sources and witnesses said.

The victims were crossing north near Keap Street about 5 a.m. when Chevy Malibu traveling eastbound struck them, catapulting them into the oncoming traffic, FDNY and NYPD officials said.

Another vehicle then struck the man as he lay in the middle of the street, police said.

"He was laid out on the ground," said Gregory, a dispatcher at a nearby car service who rushed to the scene when he heard about the accident over the radio.

Emergency medical technicians raced to the scene but the man was already dead, police said.

The NYPD was withholding his identity until cops could notify his relatives.

But witnesses who recognized the victim remembered him as friendly and hardworking.

"He was a great guy," said a woman who asked that her name not be used.

The woman who was struck was rushed to Elmhurst Hospital Center, officials said.

"I saw [the EMTs] pick up the girl and put her in the ambulance," Gregory, who asked that his last name not be used, added.

The unidentified woman, who is 24-years-old, was listed in critical condition, police said.
