Separate hit-and-runs in Elmhurst, Harlem leave two dead

Two men were fatally struck by hit-and-run drivers in different boroughs early Monday, cops said.

An unidentified man was killed when a driver slammed into him in the westbound lanes of the Long Island Expressway, near Exit 19 in the Elmhurst neighborhood of Queens, around 5:15 a.m. cops said.

He was found unconscious and unresponsive in the right travel lane with severe body trauma. EMS pronounced him dead on the scene.

Cops had no details on what type of vehicle struck him, but confirmed that the driver took off and remained at large later in the morning.

Hours earlier, another man — who cops also say is unidentified — was fatally struck on Malcolm X Boulevard near West 125th Street in Harlem just before 3 a.m.

The man, who was found in the street with severe head trauma, was pronounced dead on scene.

The driver took off — heading north on Malcolm X Boulevard — and cops also did not have details on the vehicle involved in that accident.
