This just in from a tipster...A pedestrian was struck, and is possibly dead, from being hit by an SUV at the intersection of 8th and Carroll this morning. I have heard reports that are not confirmed from a news source that I have that it's a male in his 50's. It is not a hit and run since the vehicle is still on the scene. It's windshield is smashed up. Sadly this is the same intersection (same side of the street and everything) where the bicyclist was struck and killed recently. A bystander believed that it was probably due to sun in the eyes of the driver going down 8th Avenue that caused the accident. But this is obviously just a guess. It's a very sad day for Park Slope.
