Man, 33, fatally struck by car crossing Brooklyn street


A 33-year-old man was fatally struck by a car at a Brooklyn intersection early Tuesday, officials said.

Luis Garcia was crossing Flatbush Ave. against the light near Fourth Ave. outside the Atlantic Terminal Mall in Downtown Brooklyn when a black 2002 Dodge Stratus traveling south ran into him about 12:05 a.m., cops said.

Garcia, a married resident of Sunset Park, suffered a severe head injury and was rushed to Brooklyn Hospital, where he later died.

“It’s a very emotional time right now," his brother told the Daily News outside the victim’s home hours after the crash. Relatives were too distraught to say more.

The 55-year-old man driving the Dodge Stratus remained at the scene. No charges were immediately filed.
