In a news release, police said the victim — a man in his 20s — was walking north across 82 Avenue when he was struck by the vehicle on the west side of 93 Street at about 7:45 p.m.
Police said the pedestrian was in a crosswalk at the time he was hit and that the “do not walk” signal was activated when he tried to cross.
