No charges have been filed against the driver involved in an accident that claimed the life of a pedestrian as he attempted to cross a busy Forest Hills street early on Sunday morning.

Officers from the 112th Precinct responded to a 911 call at 12:27 a.m. on Aug. 6 about a pedestrian who was hit by a car in front of a location on Yellowstone Boulevard near Selfridge Street.

Moments earlier, according to law enforcement sources, 29-year-old Arkadiy Dibin of Alderton Street in Rego Park attempted to run across Yellowstone Boulevard in the middle of the block when he was struck by a 2005 Buick Lacrosse operated by a 66-year-old man that was traveling northbound on the boulevard. The driver stopped his vehicle and remained at the scene.
