COLLEGE POINT — A 47-year-old man was killed when he was struck by two vehicles on a busy College Point street less than a block from where he lived Tuesday morning, the NYPD said.
Police said Brian Howell had been trying to cross 14th Avenue at the intersection of 129th Street at about 6:45 a.m. when he was first hit by a 2011 Toyota Camry.
Howell was then knocked into the opposite lane of traffic where he was struck by a 2000 Chevrolet Suburban SUV, according to cops.
Both drivers remained at the scene of the accident, where Howell was pronounced dead by emergency responders, police said.
The NYPD’s Highway Patrol Collision Investigation Squad was reviewing the circumstances of Howell’s death and the investigation was ongoing, the NYPD said.
Plant mechanic Howell had worked at Con Edison since 1989.
“We are sorry for the loss to his family,” said Con Ed spokesman Chris Olert.
