A car hit and killed a doctor Monday night just steps from the Flushing hospital where he worked.
Dr. Siu Lee, 55, of Woodbury, N.Y. was crossing Booth Memorial Avenue at 141st Street around 6:15 p.m. when a Mercedes Benz struck him outside of New York Hospital Queens, said police.
He was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Police said no further action will be taken at this time against the driver pending further investigation by the NYPD’s Collision Investigation Squad.
Lee was an attending pediatrician at the hospital for the last 15 years, said a spokesperson for New York Hospital Queens.
