Man fatally struck by bus in Midtown hit-and-run

A man was fatally struck by a bus driver in a Midtown hit-and-run collision Tuesday evening — the third city pedestrian death in less than 12 hours, police said.

The man, 51, was crossing Fifth Avenue at 59th street around 5:50 p.m. when he was struck and killed by the bus driver traveling south on Fifth Avenue, according to police.

The man suffered severe body trauma and was rushed to Weill Cornell Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Police are searching for the driver. It was not immediately clear who had the right of way at the intersection.

Earlier on Tuesday morning, a 10-year-old boy was struck and killed by a city sanitation truck in Corona, Queens.

Later on Tuesday, a 68-year-old woman was killed in Brooklyn when she was hit by a cement truck while crossing a street in Borough Park.
