NEW YORK (AP) - Police in New York City have arrested a man who they say fatally struck a 67-year-old pedestrian in Queens.

New York Police Department officials say the 45-year-old Queens man was arrested and charged with failing to yield to a pedestrian in a marked crosswalk immediately following Wednesday night’s crash in the Jackson Heights section of the borough.

Police say Henry Boimel was crossing 76th Street near 37th Avenue around 7:30 p.m. when he was struck by an SUV. Officers say the driver remained at the scene.

Boimel was rushed to Elmhurst Hospital Center, where he was pronounced dead on arrival.
