2006_07_hitrun.jpgA man was killed by a car while he crossed Third Avenue around 4PM. The Daily News reports that 54 year old Eugenio Garcia of Queens had been visiting a friend in Kips Bay. The black car that hit him did not stop, but some onlookers tried to follow it. Two doctors started CPR on him, but were unable to revive him. Onlookers also say that Garcia was not in the crosswalk.

And a 60-something year old man was attacked and mugged at knifepoint in Central Park around 3PM. The Post calls it "an encounter" and reminds everyone that the Ramble, where the incident occured, is a "gay trysting locale." Apparently the attacker wanted a cigarette, but the older man refused.
