Police are questioning a driver in Brighton Beach after it was discovered he had struck a pedestrian -- 17 miles away, near Shea Stadium -- and unknowingly dragged him into Brooklyn.
The bizarre incident started in Corona at about 6:15 a.m. when the driver of a sport utility vehicle called 911 to report he believed he had just struck someone at 51st Avenue and 108th Street.
Officers who responded found no evidence of an accident, but about 7 a.m. a pedestrian in Brighton Beach saw a dead man under a 1998 Chevy minivan. The passerby told the driver to stop, and police were called.
When officers were dispatched to the area of Neptune Avenue and Brighton 10th Terrace, they found the dead man under the van, police said.
