ROSEDALE—After midnight Wednesday, a teenage girl was fatally struck by a vehicle at the intersection of Francis Lewis Boulevard and Sunrise Highway in Rosedale, police officials said.

Officers from the 105th Precinct found a 16-year-old girl unconscious and unresponsive on the roadway, police said.

Emergency medical responders rushed the girl to Jamaica Hospital, where she was pronounced dead. The identity of the teenager is pending family notification, police said.

Police said the preliminary investigation reveals that a dark-colored van was traveling eastbound on Sunrise Highway, when the teenage girl was trying to cross the busy intersection from the southeast crosswalk.

Police officials said she was struck by the van, which fled the scene going east on Sunrise Highway.

Police said the investigation was ongoing by the NYPD’s Collision Investigation Squad.
