A 69-year-old pedestrian was fatally struck last week by a motorist who was making an illegal U-turn on Jamaica Avenue, according to police.
Khalid Rahaman, of 89th Road in Jamaica, was hit near the intersection of Jamaica Avenue and Sutphin Boulevard by the driver of a 2018 Nissan Sport Utility Vehicle at around 2:40 p.m. on Friday. He was taken to Jamaica Hospital Medical Center, where he was pronounced deceased on Saturday.
The driver, a 63-year-old man, struck Rahaman while making a a U-turn from westbound Jamaica Avenue to eastbound Jamaica Avenue. Rahaman was hit while crossing the street midblock.
There have been no arrests and the investigation remains ongoing by the NYPD’s Highway Patrol Collision Investigation Squad.
crossing the street mid block does that mean he was jaywalking and the driver didn’t expect him to cross the street there?
