  • Marine killed crossing street during NY Fleet Week


    Published - May 26 2011 07:05AM EST
    A Marine in New York City for Fleet Week was hit by a car and killed as he was returning to his ship, the USS Iwo Jima, berthed at a Hudson River pier.
    The accident occurred at around 1 a.m. Thursday at 12th Avenue and 49th Street, near where the ship is docked by the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum.
    Police say the 22-year-old had exited a taxicab with other Marines and was crossing 12th Avenue when he was struck.
    Officials say the 39-year-old driver pulled over one street away, called 911 and walked back to the accident scene.
    Police say no charges were filed.
    The Marine was in uniform. His name was withheld pending family notification
    Fleet Week festivities kicked off on Wednesday.

      Godam shame.. Rip to this young soldier.

      Its really sickening seeing what drivers and pedestrians get away with in NYC due to the lack of manpower these days. Not sure of circumstances w that driver but it goes full circle...

      Cabbies rush to let out passengers on busy NYC streets because they get a glimpse of that hand waving and want to get that next fare quick, even if it puts the first passengers at risk. Drivers in NYC today don't signal, weave, don't use hazards and speed recklessly and lack attentiveness, in a city where its expected that theres thousands of pedestrians walking around. And some of those same pedestrians also venture unenforced wherever they please.

      Very sad, bless his family.
