The Daily News reported that, according to police, a "male pedestrian in his 40s was killed in a hit-and-run crash in Queens Sunday night," after "walking at the intersection of 37th Ave. and 91st St. in Jackson Heights when he was struck about 8:50 p.m." He was later pronounced dead at Elmhurst Hospital, and now the police think he was beaten by a gang—WABC 7 says, "The man's injuries were so severe that it was initially believed he was hit by a car."
