Pedestrian fatalities

So far this year, 189 people have been killed by vehicles compared to 150 at the same time last year, according to the latest NYPD statistics.
"We need a holistic re-thinking of our streetscape to stop this carnage," Eric Adams said at an event on Monday.
The four-year-old victim was pronounced dead at Maimonides Hospital, while the 6-year-old remains in critical condition.
The company whose driver struck the child has been involved in a number of fatal crashes in recent year.
"We're always kind of playing catch up when there's another tragedy that happens," said Councilmember Francisco Moya.
The crash happened a few hours after a 10-year-old was killed by a Sanitation truck driver in Queens.
The suspect, who stayed at the scene, has been charged with vehicular manslaughter and driving while intoxicated.
Pedestrian and cyclist deaths increased in 2019.
The fatal crashes occurred in Hell's Kitchen, Sunset Park, SoHo, Gowanus, and Flushing.
On Tuesday, police classified the incident as a homicide. A suspect has not yet been identified.
The 10-year-old boy was waiting for a bus on the sidewalk in Brooklyn before the driver killed him.
