Elderly Pedestrian Killed Crossing Ocean Parkway

A four-sentence AP squib reports a Wednesday night pedestrian death:

A New York City man has been killed in a hit-and-run outside his home.

Police say 67-year-old Juan Sifuentes was struck by a dark-colored car while trying to cross Ocean Parkway in Brooklyn.

The victim was pronounced dead on arrival at a hospital following the accident late Wednesday.

Police are investigating.

Naturally, though the driver kept going and no one knows who s/he is or what led to the crash, the AP has decided that Juan Sifuentes died by "accident."

Sifuentes is the second pedestrian reported killed in the city this week, following the Sunday massacre of young dad Miguel Colon at the hands of road-raging psycho Mark St. Pierre in the Bronx.

If anyone knows of additional coverage of last night's crash, please link from the comments.
