FLUSHING — An elderly man was found dead in the road early Sunday in Flushing after he was allegedly struck by a vehicle on Northern Boulevard, police said.

Police responded to a 911 call at 5:19 a.m. Sunday morning and found an unconscious male lying in the street at Northern Boulevard and 108th Street, according to authorities.

Police said the man, 70, was unresponsive with trauma to the head and body. EMS arrived and announced the man dead at the scene.

The identity of the man is pending proper family notification.

A preliminary investigation determined that the male was struck at the intersection by a Toyota Highlander operated by a 40-year-old female traveling eastbound on Northern Boulevard. The driver remained at the scene and hasn’t been charged, according to police.

The NYPD’s Highway Collision Investigation Squad has responded and the investigation is ongoing.

Anon is correct. I hate the way everyone just makes everything "flushing". Like Bayside, the post office and some news reports always say "flushing" but I'm like "no I live in Bayside".

At 5:19 AM, it was pitch black outside. I wonder if forensics can show if he was struck at some place other than the crosswalk. The driver stayed at the scene, so she probably never saw the victim.

Anon, is absolutely right. Northern Boulevard and 108th Street is in Corona & always has been. But I'm wondering……… maybe it really was Flushing & the street is wrong, maybe it was 158th St & Northern Blvd, or 168th & Northern Blvd? The only thing we know for sure is that 108th St. & Northern Blvd is NOT in Flushing. How about it Times Ledger, please give us the correct location!
