Police are searching for two drivers who both struck the same man in Queens Sunday morning before fleeing the scene. The double hit-and-run took place just after 2:30 a.m. Sunday morning in Ozone Park.
According to the NYPD, the 43-year-old victim was struck near the intersection of 115th Avenue and 131st Street as he was trying to cross the street. Then, as he was laying in the Westbound lane of 115th Avenue, a black SUV ran him over. The man suffered severe trauma to his head and body, and was unresponsive when emergency workers arrived. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Neither of the drivers has been identified by the police, and a search for both is underway. ABC reports that the NYPD is seeking surveillance footage from the area.
