RIDGEWOOD — A 32-year-old Ridgewood man was killed in a Middle Village hit-and-run early Monday morning, the NYPD said.

The Police Department said Karoll Grzegorczyk was struck by a dark Sedan after walking between cars and stepping into Fresh Pond Road mid-block.

The truck driver drove away from the accident, on Fresh Pond Road between 60th Drive and Elliot Avenue, leaving the man lying in the intersection, according to the NYPD.

Officers said they found Grzegorczyk, 32, of Ridgewood, unconscious and unresponsive in the road at about 2:52 a.m.

He was rushed to Elmhurst General Hospital, where the NYPD said he was pronounced dead.

No arrests have been made and the NYPD said its investigation was ongoing.

sad but avoidable from queens says:
This does not appear to be a reckless or drunk driver. The man walked out between cars in the middle of the night, probably in dark clothes. True the driver should have stopped. Wonder if the victim was drunk and/or high.

Or perhaps the truck diver was on his cell phone or otherwise distracted and did realize that he ran over someone but figured that due to the time, nobody saw it so he fled the scene.
