    A 26-year-old pedestrian was killed on Long Island early Sunday morning, after he was struck by one car and then a second car that fled the scene, police said.

    Carlos Perez-Rodas, of Uniondale, was first hit by a Toyota Corolla on Broadway in Amityville Village at around 12:45 a.m. The driver of that car stayed at the scene of the accident and was attempting to stop southbound traffic when a dark-colored Mercedes struck Perez-Rodas again and drove off, authorities said.

    Perez-Rodas was transported to Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.

    The driver of the Mercedes was last seen heading south on Broadway. Anyone with information about the driver is asked to call the Vehicular Crimes Unit at 631-852-6555.
