A 58-year-old Elmhurst woman died in a hit and run Saturday night.

A 58-year-old Elmhurst woman was killed Saturday night in an apparent hit-and-run while crossing Queens Boulevard, police said.

Nisath Hossain was struck by a car in Forest Hills near Queens Boulevard and 71st Avenue on September 21 shortly after 10 p.m., cops said.

The driver fled the scene, police said, and Hossain was later pronounced dead at North Shore University Hospital.

Authorities believe Hossain was crossing the major thoroughfare when she was fatally hit by a car going westbound.

The notoriously dangerous Queens Boulevard is unofficially known by borough residents as the “Boulevard of Death.”

There are no arrests, police said, and the investigation is ongoing.
