From the Daily News:
A 76-year-old man was mowed down early Friday while crossing notorious Queens Blvd. in Kew Gardens, police said.
Richard Borchers was crossing 80th Rd. when a marked Correction Department car heading south slammed into him about 5:30 a.m, police said.
The mortally wounded Borchers was rushed to Jamaica Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
It was initially unclear whether he was crossing with the light.
Some witnesses told cops Borchers had the right of way, but cops believe that he was walking against the light.
The driver, a civilian worker, remained on the scene and is not expected to be charged, sources said.
