We just got this in from a tipster:

a gray pathfinder clipped an old man crossing nostrand on ave y while turning. a second gray murano ran over the guy (or at least hit him again) afterwards. the pathfinder left, murano stayed. guy taken to hospital. he was old so…

This happened at approximately 3:40 this afternoon. We’ll update with more information if it becomes available.

UPDATE (5:55 p.m.): Our tipster followed up with this:

bunch of cop cars are back on the scene. they closed off nostrand on that side. … guy mustve died to get this much police presence.

      i think it’s the influx of European and Russian drivers. I had heard years and years ago how reckless they drive. I mean, NY always had drivers a little dangerous, but NOTHING like the last 5-10  years or so. I remember my grandmother, who had made many trips to Europe (I’ve never been there), telling me this.

        Always a rush to blame the Russians of Sheepshead Bay…what young white kids in their parents cars don’t speed? Old black women are the best drivers? Asian’s? If you want to make a xenophobic comment, don’t behind some “I head this from my grandmother” and admit that your prejudice.

    I just wanted to thank Sheepshead Bites. I drove down Nostrand this evening instead of the wreck Knapp St./ Gerritsen Av. is and saw the south bound side of Nostrand at Ave Y closed. I didn’t see anything but wondered why and wouldn’t have found this out as well as other neighborhood news if it wasn’t for you guys. So, Thank you. 🙂

    walking home on y and 29th at 1030 pm i passed the fresh aftermath of another accident with an old woman and an older man. it looked like a fender bender, and i didnt witness the event, but they way the old woman was talking to someone on the phone sort of sounded like she was on some form of prescription medication. and the older man looked pissed, leading me to believe she was to blame…but who knows…


    aren’t a good portion of the populous on the streets on prescription meds, and don’t some of these meds make you woozy. are people who take xanax and such aloud to drive? hell, they are aloud to walk the streets?

    I”m amazed there aren’t more seniors mowed down. Daily, I”m running for my life across a street because some maniac simply MUST make the right or left and beat me to the spot. Or else the light has turned red three seconds ago, but they’re still plowing through. I’m lucky that I’m still nimble at 55, I can still accelerate and get away.

         The old people are probably forced to wait like 10 minutes to make sure there’s no car in any direction within a mile of their crossing. That’s the only way they can survive apparently.

       Here’s a good one. The other day, on West 5th onto Neptune, a lady is making a right, looking left, and is on her cellphone to boot!  Had I not been carefully watching, I would have been absolutely mowed down, as I had started to cross way in front of her. I don’t think she ever saw me, or anything else in her way.

    This is a terrible, terrible thing someone lost there life to a moron who drives with blinders on & don’t give a rats ass. A life was lost here I feel so bad for his family.  This driver should have his license taking away for good.  And he should serve time.  Lets pray they get this person not a person I mean an ananmal. No remorse either
