Disturbing video captures man run over by car after falling in NYC street (Watch)
Disturbing video obtained by The Post shows the moment a driver fatally barreled over a 66-year-old man who had collapsed on the street in Sunset Park, cops said Sunday.
The video shows the pedestrian fall for some reason onto Fourth Avenue as he was walking midblock between 58th and 59th streets in Brooklyn around 6:45 p.m. Saturday, police said.
After several seconds of the man lying in the road, a 2015 Nissan Altima can be seen racing toward him and then running him over.
Bystanders seen nearby don’t appear to do anything to help the man before or after he was struck.
EMS rushed the victim to NYU Langone hospital, but he couldn’t be saved, cops said. He has been identified as Jose Hernandez, who lives nearby on 59th Street, cops said.
The vehicle that struck him was later located, and charges are pending against the 54-year-old driver, police said.
