A man was killed Monday night when he was hit by a car while crossing Jamaica Avenue, police said.

The pedestrian, whose name has not been released, was crossing the road in the middle of the block near 180th Street around 8 p.m. when he was hit by a motorist driving a 2008 Honda CRV, police said.

The driver remained at the scene and the crash victim was taken to Jamaica Hospital where he was pronounced dead, authorities said.

Joe Moretti from Jamaica says:
Does not surprise me. First you have pedestrians who do not cross at the intersection and are always walking slow while crossing to begin where they should not. Then you have cars speeding on Jamaica Avenue, and livery cars always driving in the bus lanes, all the while I see rarely enforcement regarding these issues.

So no I am not surprised at all, I am surprised I do not hear more of this.
