A 62-year-old Bronx man died on Tuesday evening after a car struck him as he tried to cross the Belt Parkway.
Police said Frank Korowitz of Melrose was killed after he was struck by 2009 Nissan Maxima driving east on the highway near 150th Street in Queens, not far from the John F. Kennedy International Airport complex.
Korowitz was unconscious and unresponsive with extensive trauma throughout his body when police arrived at the scene at around 11 p.m. Tuesday, and paramedics declared him dead on at the scene.
The driver, 44-year-old Karl-Marx Waite, remained at the scene. That's when police said his own car was then rear ended by a 2002 Isuzu Rodeo.
Both Waite and the second driver, identified only as a 40-year-old man, were treated for minor injuries, and no charges drawn for Korowitz's death.
However, Waite was stopped by officers after police found that he was driving without a license, and was subsequently charged with two related charges.
