A man was fatally struck by an SUV driver who jumped the sidewalk in Hell's Kitchen after colliding with another vehicle on Friday.
Police say that a driver in a 2004 Freight Liner truck and a driver in a 2005 GMC Envoy were both headed southbound on 11th Avenue when they collided near W 42nd Street around 9:45 p.m. last night. The collision caused the Envoy to drive up on the sidewalk, striking and pinning pedestrian 56-year-old Victor Grant.
Grant was transported to Bellevue Hospital where he was pronounced dead. Both drivers remained on the scene. There were no arrests, and the investigation is ongoing.
