A man from Glendale was identified as one of the victims of a fatal hit-and-run in Brooklyn early Monday morning.

Police identified a man from Glendale as one of the victims in a fatal hit-and-run accident in the Cypress Hills section of Brooklyn early Monday morning.

Delman Maldonado, 41, of Myrtle Avenue in Glendale was one of two victims — the other is Israel Turcios, 56, of Ridgewood Avenue, Brooklyn — who lost their lives at the intersection of Fulton and Chestnut streets when a speeding car careened into them, police said.

According to law enforcement agents, the preliminary investigation of the incident revealed that an Acura TL sedan was traveling eastbound along Fulton Street when it struck Maldonado, Turcios and two parked cars at approximately 12:12 a.m. on Aug. 1.

Officers from the 75th Precinct responded to the call, and both men were found unconscious and unresponsive with trauma to their bodies. EMS units pronounced Maldonado dead at the scene, and transported Turcios to Brookdale Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

The driver of the sedan is still unknown as he fled the location on foot. There are no arrests at this time and there is an ongoing investigation by the NYPD’s Collision Investigation Squad.
