Violent Brooklyn hit-and-run kills man at site of Adams’ promise to redesign dangerous intersections


A man died Wednesday after being struck by a hit-and-run truck driver and later another motorist at a notorious intersection in Brooklyn — the very same one where nearly a year ago, Mayor Eric Adams and Transportation Commissioner Ydanis Rodriguez announced a campaign to make the city’s intersections safer for pedestrians and cyclists.

Cops responded to a 911 call just before 9:15 pm Wednesday from the intersection of Coney Island and Caton avenues in Windsor Terrace; officers from the 70th precinct arrived to a man lying in the roadway, unconscious and unresponsive, and with severe bodily trauma. Responding EMS personnel pronounced him dead on arrival.
