A man was killed in a hit-and-run incident on Thursday morning in Whitestone.

A man was found unconscious and unresponsive on the Whitestone Expressway after being struck by two vehicles, police confirmed.

The 51-year-old man was attempting to walk across four lanes on the northbound Whitestone Expressway between the Linden Place and 20th Avenue exit at 4:40 a.m. on Thursday morning. Police said that it was unclear why the man tried to cross the busy expressway.

He was first struck by a four-door SUV traveling northbound, followed by a dark-colored sedan that drove in the same direction. The driver of the SUV remained at the scene until police arrived but the second car fled from the location.

Police from the 109th Precinct responded to the emergency call and EMS pronounced the man dead at the scene. His identification is pending family notification.

There are no arrests made, and the investigation is ongoing by NYPD’s Collision Investigation Squad.

I saw a man standing on the side of the highway with a bicycle right before the 20th Avenue exit yesterday at about 5:30 p.m... I was wondering if he was gonna try crossing! That's insane considering the speed of cars and TRUCKS coming off the Whitestone Bridge and the Cross Island. I was on the S/B side.
