Only steps away from his home, a Bellerose man was fatally struck by a car as he attempted to cross Little Neck Parkway on Friday night, according to police.

Law enforcement sources said that Yogalingam Subramaniam, 64, was crossing at the intersection of Little Neck Parkway and 83rd Avenue at 8:59 p.m. on Feb. 2 when he was hit by a black 2007 Infiniti sedan heading southbound on Little Neck Parkway.

The 19-year-old male driver stopped the sedan and remained at the scene; officers from the 105th Precinct and EMS units responded moments later to a 911 call about the incident.

Subramaniam, who resided on 83rd Avenue less than a block away from the intersection, suffered severe body trauma, authorities said. Paramedics rushed him to North Shore University Hospital, where he was pronounced dead a short time later.

No charges were filed against the driver following an investigation by the NYPD Collision Investigation Squad.
