NEW YORK (AP) - Police say a pedestrian has died after being hit by a flatbed truck while crossing a street in New York City.

Police say officers found the 68-year-old woman unconscious and unresponsive late Monday night near Bryant Park in Midtown Manhattan. She had suffered head injuries.

Emergency responders declared her dead at the scene. The woman’s name isn’t being released until her family can be notified.

Police say a preliminary investigation revealed that a flatbed truck traveling in the left lane struck the woman as she was crossing 42nd street between Fifth Avenue and Madison Avenue. Investigators say she was outside of a marked crosswalk.

The 42-year-old driver of the truck stayed at the scene.

No arrests have been made. An investigation is ongoing.
