Pedestrian Struck In Midtown, Remains In Critical Condition

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – A pedestrian remains in critical condition after being hit by a truck in Midtown early Saturday morning.

Police said a 52-year-old Hispanic male was crossing West 38th Street at Seventh Avenue when a 2003 Ford truck making a left turn from Seventh and struck the man.

Emergency responders transported the pedestrian to Bellevue Hospital.

Police said there is no criminality suspected at this time, but the investigation is ongoing.

    People who live in New York have the nasty habit of walking against the Don’t Walk sign. If a car crosses while the Walk sign is lit, they scream bloody murder. But if they see the barest opportunity to cross against the Don’t Walk, they don’t mind a bit if it violates the rights of drivers to make the turn. Walking against the Don’t Walk sign is a major factor in traffic congestion.

    If I have the light I cross. If you hit me while I have the light, that house in New Jersey, not that I want to live there, is now mine.

    From Miriam-Webster
    “a : causing death”

    Why does the headline say “fatal?” You must be confusing this accident with the car crash on Rte. 22 in Hillside, NJ.

    You should look in the dictionary before you post stupid comments…. Fatal doesn’t mean 100% dead…. Duh

      oh gawd, that is stupid comment. “Fatal doesn’t mean 100% dead”. Fatal means causing death, like…dead, deceased, kaput.
      Maybe you should read a dictionary. DUH!!
      What school did you go to, so I can make sure my kids don’t go there.

    Pedestrians are just clueless when it comes to crossing streets in NYC…. Even if the light is red you still have to look around you. The worst is these parents with the strollers….they wait on the curb for the light to turn but the stroller is in the street. Or they cross and don’t even look to see if a car is going to stop! Lots of the people who get hit are the clueless ones!

    How can the accident be “fatal” when the victim is still alive?
