A pedestrian trying to cross Queens Boulevard in Forest Hills was hit and killed by a car Saturday night, the NYPD said.

Police said a woman in her 60s was struck by a tan 2000 Chevrolet Malibu driving north on the service road near 71st Avenue just before 8:30 p.m. The woman was unresponsive when emergency responders arrived and was taken to Jamaica Hospital, where she was pronounced dead, authorities said.

The NYPD said the woman was inside the marked crosswalk but allegedly crossed against the traffic signal. The driver of the vehicle remained on scene and no charges have been filed, but an investigation was ongoing, police said.

I knew it was going to happen soon! That's what I commented when the story ran about the Queens Blvd. study! No pedestrians should ever cross Queens blvd. unless they're suicidal ! Pedestrian bridges need to be built. You heard it here first.
