A 63-year-old man succumbed to his injuries three days after being struck by an SUV just a couple blocks from his Astoria home, police announced Wednesday.

The incident happened at 34th Avenue and 28th Street at about 4:50 p.m. Friday, authorities said.

Favhad Chowdhury was crossing the intersection when a Chevy Suburban that was backing up eastbound along 34th Avenue struck him with its rear bumper, causing Chowdhury to fall into the roadway, cops said.

EMS took Chowdhury to Elmhurst Hospital, where he died on Monday.

There have been no arrests at this time and the investigation is ongoing.
