A 72-year-old Corona man has succumbed to his injuries after being hit by a car just three blocks from his home late last month.

A 2015 Honda, heading northbound up 108th Street, then fatally struck Delgado at around 8:20 a.m. while he has in the middle of the intersection.

Police arrive on the scene and found Delgado with trauma to his head and body. He was transported by EMS to New York Presbyterian Hospital- Queens where he later died.

A review by the medical examiner determined that the cause of death was a result of the collision.

Police did not say whether charges will be pressed against the 27-year-old Honda driver.
