A man is dead after he was hit by a car on Rockaway Boulevard Tuesday morning.

The victim was crossing the roadway at Farmers Boulevard around 6:15 a.m. when a Subaru Impreza traveling eastbound on Rockaway Boulevard struck the man, said police.

He was taken to Jamaica Hospital where he was deceased.

The driver remained on the scene of the accident and the investigation is ongoing, said cops.

The victim, 24-year-old Erik Johnson, was on his way to work when he was struck, according to Alicia Tucker, godmother to one of his two daughters, ages three and one.

A candlelight vigil will be held for Johnson Tuesday night at 5 p.m. at Farmers Boulevard and Rockaway Boulevard, where the accident took place, said Tucker.

There is also a fundraiser for the memorial and funeral services for Johnson. Donations can be made online at http://www.youcaring.com/memorial-fundraiser/flying-angel/111896#sthash.r4ctuwA5.dpuf.
