A 70-year-old man died Thursday three days after he was struck by a vehicle on Northern Boulevard, police said.

Genci Frasheri, a Whitestone resident, was hit by a motorist at around 2:54 p.m. on Monday while crossing 158th Street at Northern Boulevard.

Police say Frasheri was struck by a driver of a 2021 BMW who was making a left turn from Northern Boulevard onto 158th Street. It isn’t clear whether the driver had the light.

Frasheri was transported to NY Hospital Queens where he was pronounced dead yesterday.

The driver, a 34-year-old man, was not injured and remained at the scene.

The investigation is being conducted by NYPD Highway Collision Investigation Squad and there have been no arrests.

Op-ed: Congestion pricing would do much more harm than good for New Yorkers

Jun. 11, 2024 By Assemblymember David I. Weprin

Like many residents throughout the five boroughs and across the New York Metro Area, I was pleasantly surprised by Governor Kathy Hochul’s decision to “indefinitely pause” the implementation of Congestion Pricing. Rather than seeing this as a cynical calculation, as some have alleged, I see the Governor’s decision as a deeply pragmatic response to the crescendo of public concerns that I and many others have raised for years. As the countdown to the June 30 implementation date neared, everyday New Yorkers did what we do best: we spoke up for ourselves and said we won’t accept a bad deal! I applaud Governor Hochul for having the courage not just to listen to us but to take a tough stand against this misguided policy.
