Share

An 86-year-old pedestrian was killed Wednesday when he was struck by a New York Department of Transportation vehicle in Brooklyn.

The man was crossing 92nd Street near Dahlgren Place when he was hit, with the force of the impact severing his head from his body, according to the New York Post.

Police did not release the driver’s name but said he is 31.

News 12 reported Thursday that the victim was Antonio Conigliaro. Citing sources it did not name, it said the elderly man lived not far from where he was killed.

Neighbors and witnesses said the intersection where the accident took place is known for being dangerous.

“Especially the walk sign. It turns on but by the time you’re in the middle of the road, then it’s gone,” Samia Haq of Bay Ridge said.

“Somebody who is disabled or somebody who cannot walk fast — it’s really, really dangerous for them,” she said.

Is New York City a dangerous place?

News 12 reported that surveillance video showed Conigliaro walking in the crosswalk when he was struck by an oncoming vehicle.

“I can tell you it’s a dangerous intersection,” Bay Ridge resident Sean McMahon said.

“Everybody is always trying to jump the lights to make the turn to get onto the expressway,” he said.

Haq said she knows how dangerous the intersection is because her mother was hit at the same place in 2021.

She said her mother survived.

“I sent a message to my mom and I said, ‘Mom I’m so lucky to have you to this day.’ It could’ve been her too,” Haq said.

As of Thursday morning, no charges had been filed in connection with the man’s death, according to WNYW-TV.

The city’s Department of Transportation had no comment on the incident, according to WPIX-TV.


A Note from Our Deputy Managing Editor:

 

“We don’t even know if an election will be held in 2024.” Those 12 words have been stuck in my head since I first read them. 

 

Former Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn recently made that comment to Floyd Brown, founder of The Western Journal. 

 

And if the leftists and the elites get their way, that’s exactly what will happen — no real election, no real choice for the Electoral College, and no real say for the American people. 

 

The Western Journal is fighting to keep that from happening, but we can’t do it alone.

 

We work tirelessly to expose the lying leftist media and the corrupt America-hating elites.

 

But Big Tech’s stranglehold is now so tight that without help from you, we will not be able to continue the fight. 

 

The 2024 election is literally the most important election for every living American. We have to unite and fight for our country, otherwise we will lose it. And if we lose the America we love in 2024, we’ll lose it for good. Can we count on you to help? 

 

With you we will be able to field journalists, do more investigative work, expose more corruption, and get desperately needed trStephen A. Smith Lights Up Analyst Over WNBA Delusion, Caitlin Clark Jealousy - 'Who Talks About the WNBA?!'uth to millions of Americans. 

 

We can do this only with your help. Please don’t wait one minute. Donate right now.
