Two men were injured on Tuesday night, one fatally, after being struck by two drivers on a barren block of West 207th Street between the 207th Street 1 train station and the University Heights Bridge, police said. The pair tried to run across the street around 10 p.m., but were struck by the driver of a Ford Explorer, who braked but couldn't stop in time, according to the NYPD.

The impact threw both of them into an opposite lane, where the driver of a Toyota sedan ran over both of them, cops said. Paramedics drove the victims to St. Barnabas Hospital in the Bronx. There, doctors pronounced one man, a 24-year-old, dead. The other, 35, is in serious condition, police said.

The Police Department has not released the dead man's identity pending notification of his families. Both drivers stayed at the scene and neither has been charged with a crime. Sneakers could be seen in the middle of the street later that night.

The Inwood block was the scene of 27 crashes in 2014, one that injured a pedestrian, according to city data. The mayhem seems to be ramping up this year: there had already been 20 crashes before last night, including three that injured pedestrians, the data show.
