An elderly man was struck and killed while trying to cross North Conduit Avenue in South Ozone Park on Friday afternoon, according to authorities.
Police from the 106th Precinct responded to a 911 call of a pedestrian stuck on North Conduit Avenue and Cohancey Street near the Belt Parkway just after noon on April 14, according to the NYPD.
Upon arrival officers discovered 73-year-old Steven Aragona, of Lynbrook, lying on the roadway unconscious and unresponsive with trauma about the body. EMS responded to the scene and rushed the victim to Jamaica Hospital Medical Center, where he was later pronounced dead, police said.
