Man fatally struck on New York Avenue

A man was struck by a car and killed on New York Avenue at the start of Wednesday morning’s rush-hour, according to D.C. police. He was second pedestrian in the District to be killed in an accident in 24 hours.

Authorities released few details about the latest crash, which occurred about 5:20 a.m. in the 1300 block of New York Avenue NE in the Ivy City neighborhood. The crash caused significant delays for motorists traveling into the city Wednesday morning.

Police did not identify the victim, nor did they release any other details, citing an ongoing investigation. Video footage of the vehicle on television newscasts showed its windshield caved in on the driver’s side.

On Tuesday, a 94-year-old woman was struck and killed as she ventured across a street in a crosswalk, according to D.C. police. That accident occurred in the 2800 block of Georgia Avenue NW, near where she lived.
