A 25-year-old pedestrian suffered a severe leg injury Friday after being struck by a motorist who was attempting to turn around a double-parked vehicle on Myrtle Avenue in Glendale, according to authorities.
Police say that the 32-year-old driver operating a 2020 Honda Fit was traveling westbound on Myrtle Avenue when she stopped behind a double-parked vehicle around 1:30 p.m. on Sept. 16. The driver attempted to pull out and around the parked vehicle before losing control of her car and mounting the curb in front of 71-34 Myrtle Ave., within the confines of the 104th Precinct, where she struck the 25-year-old man.
EMS arrived at the scene and transported the man to Jamaica Hospital Medical Center in critical condition with a severe leg injury, police said.
The driver remained at the scene and a police spokesperson said no criminality is suspected at this time.
The NYPD’s Highway Collision Investigation Squad is continuing its investigation into the collision.
