FLUSHING — Attempting to walk across a Flushing street proved fatal for a senior man who was struck and killed by an SUV Saturday afternoon.

Police said the incident occurred Nov. 10 at 5:03 p.m. in the vicinity of Parsons Boulevard and 27th Avenue.

According to law enforcement sources, the 86-year-old man was walking west to east across Parsons Boulevard when he was hit by a Toyota Highlander traveling northbound on the roadway.

Officers from the 109th Precinct and EMS responded to the scene and found the victim with head and body trauma. Paramedics rushed him to NewYork-Presbyterian Queens Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. Police have withheld his identity, pending family notification.

The NYPD Collision Investigation Squad is handling the case and no arrests have been made at this time.

Jr from Bayside says:
They probably took away his license, as the anti elderly driver license crowd is very vocal, so instead he gets mowed down.

Helton from Flushing says:
5:03 PM on Nov 10 means it was almost dark, so the victim was probably not visible. Since no arrests were made, I assume that the driver had the light and the victim may very well have been crossing against the light. So many accidents are caused by the carelessness of pedestrians.

I know this street well. No doubt it was a speeding Asian. They are so so dangerous. Even if an old person jumps out, you should be able to react quick enough. They don't, nor will.

Celtic - you are a despicable person. You are the only dangerous person.

Celtic is so funny because he is mad that his little town has been taken over and everything that he's ever known is becoming more and more irrelevant. He can't move anywhere else because he is barely middle class, living paycheck to paycheck. Poor thing.

Joe, the ginny from Bayside. Celtic ain't Irish nor does she drink. As for Irish pubs, I wish they'd all close down. Now get me a pizza you wop.

Irish pubs, aka crap holes in the wall where dumb people can over pay for their drinks and talk to other people as dumb as themselves.
