A pedestrian was fatally struck by a hit-and-run driver Thursday at the intersection of Broadway and 69th Street—at the southbound exit ramp off the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway.

The victim, a man whose identity has yet to be released, was hit at around 9:20 p.m. while crossing the street within the marked crosswalk. Police were called to the scene where they found him lying on the roadway unconscious and unresponsive with trauma to his head and body.

EMS responded to the scene and transported him to NYC Health & Hospitals/Elmhurst, where he was pronounced dead.

Police said the driver did not remain on the scene and an investigation remains ongoing. The NYPD did not provide a description of the vehicle.

Firefighter injured battling 2-alarm house fire in Forest Hills early Wednesday morning: FDNY

The FDNY battled a fast-moving two-alarm house fire in Forest Hills early Wednesday morning that injured one firefighter. The blaze broke out in a two-story private home at 114 Walnut St., a block north of Forest Park at 2:34 a.m. Arriving units found heavy fire conditions throughout the basement, first and second floors. Firefighters were hampered by an SUV parked illegally in front of a fire hydrant at the location.

The FDNY transmitted a second alarm, bringing 25 units and 106 firefighters and EMS personnel to the scene. Nearby residents said the building had been undergoing construction in recent weeks and firefighters were evacuated from the rooftop due to sagging conditions towards the rear of the home. Firefighters could be seen through a second-story window pulling down ceilings after flames breached the cockloft, the area between the roof and ceiling.
