Two teenage girls were struck by a car at an Ozone Park intersection on Monday morning, and one of them has died of her injuries, according to police.
Authorities said the incident occurred at 6:42 a.m. at the corner of Cross Bay Boulevard and 149th Avenue, a short distance from J.H.S. 202.
Law enforcement sources said Jazmine Marin, 13, of 107th Avenue in Richmond Hill and another 13-year-old girl were crossing the boulevard eastbound about 20 feet south of 149th Avenue when they were hit by a green Chevrolet sedan operated by a 65-year-old man traveling southbound on Cross Bay Boulevard.
The driver stopped his vehicle and remained at the scene following the incident.
Officers from the 106th Precinct and EMS units rushed to the location. Both girls were taken to Jamaica Hospital; Marin, who suffered severe head trauma, was pronounced dead on arrival. The other teenager sustained a leg injury and is listed in stable condition.
No charges have been filed against the driver, and an investigation is ongoing.
