At approximately 1:30 this afternoon, a van driver struck an unidentified man at the intersection of Nostrand Avenue and St. Marks Avenue in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. Reader David Sessions was in a nearby bodega when the crash occurred. "An FDNY ambulance was parked on the block, so they were immediately on the scene," he writes. "There was no blood that I could see, and the guy started moving after a few minutes - he resisted slightly when the medics were strapping him to the board." FDNY reports receiving a call at 1:36 p.m., and transporting the victim to St. John's Hospital. His condition is unknown. The driver remained on the scene.
