Yesterday at approximately 5:30 p.m., a scooterist ran a stop sign at 65th Street and Dewey Avenue and was struck by a vehicle, Business Administrator Luis Baez said following an inquiry from HCV at this evening’s board of commissioners meeting.
The driver of the vehicle waited at the scene until first responders arrived, eventually transporting the scooterist to a local hospital. He was pronounced dead a short time later.
Baez added that no charges or summonses had been issued to the driver at this time.
The West New York Police Department is handling the investigation and no additional information was released this evening.
