Bronx, NY (November 13, 2020) – Around 4 p.m. on Thursday, November 12, a fatal pedestrian accident took place at an intersection in the Bronx.
According to NYPD officials, the accident happened at the intersection of East 138th Street and Exterior Street when a tractor-trailer collided with a pedestrian. When police arrived at the scene, they found a 71-year-old man lying in the roadway with extensive head injuries.
The man, who has not yet been fully identified, was rushed to a local hospital but was pronounced dead upon arrival.
Witnesses confirmed that a white tractor-trailer was traveling south on Exterior when it collided with the pedestrian while making a turn. The driver did not stop but police believe that the driver likely did not know that they struck a pedestrian.
The roadway was blocked in the area of the intersection for an extended period of time.
The investigation into the circumstances of the accident continues.
We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim at this time.
