An elderly man is dead after being struck by a car in the Borough Park section of Brooklyn, New York, according to rescue workers.

Brooklyn Police said that a 75-year-old man was crossing a street when he was struck and killed after a two-car crash on Thursday.

Xiaoci Hu was hit at 7:00 a.m., while crossing Seventh Avenue near 56th Street.

Investigators believe that a Toyota Camry slowed despite having a green light in order to let Hu cross the street.

However, a red Jeep Cherokee driving behind the 1995 Camry crashed into the back of it, causing the Camry to hit Hu.

Rescue workers took Hu to Lutheran Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.

Both drivers remained at the scene, and the investigation is ongoing, but so far, no arrests have been made.
