A man crossing a street in Ridgewood early Thursday morning was struck and killed by an MTA bus, according to authorities.
The bus was traveling northbound on Wyckoff Avenue around 5:10 a.m, at the Brooklyn-Queens border, when it made a right turn to head onto Palmetto Street, police said. It then hit the pedestrian with its rear-wheel as he was crossing Palmetto Street.
The victim, who has yet to be identified by police but is believed to be in his 40s, was taken to Wyckoff Heights Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.
Police said there have been no arrests and the investigation is ongoing.
