Army Veteran Crossing Harlem Street Dead

pedestrian-struck1In Harlem, a 2009 Saturn slammed into the 63-year-old man — identified by his brother as Barney Pinkney, an Army veteran — as he tried to cross Morningside Avenue mid-street and outside the crosswalk, by West 124th Street at about 7:40 p.m., cops said.

The driver stayed on the scene, and rescuers took Pinkney to St. Luke’s Hospital, but he couldn’t be saved.

“He was just crossing the street. One minute you’re there and the next, it’s just over,” said his brother, Russel Lowery, 53.
