Streetsblog: NYC Motorists Killed Three Pedestrians on City Sidewalks Today

In one tragic day in New York City, three people walking on the sidewalk were killed by drivers; and after this story was published, a fourth pedestrian was struck and killed on Staten Island.

Three pedestrians were killed on NYC sidewalks today in two separate crashes. Just before 7:30 a.m. on Queens Boulevard in Elmhurst, a 22-year-old man driving a new Camaro ran over and killed two men on the sidewalk, and just before 1 p.m., a woman was killed on an East Harlem corner after a taxi driver struck a box truck, which careened onto the sidewalk. So far, no charges have been filed, though witnesses say the Queens Boulevard driver was speeding and the East Harlem cabbie ran a red light, according to reports.
