A man who was fatally struck by a sport utility vehicle near Union Square Park early Tuesday was identified by police on Wednesday.
Adrian Blanc, 34, of Brooklyn, was hit by a dark-colored 2016 Jeep Renegade at the intersection of East 14th Street and Union Square East just before 1 a.m. Tuesday, according to cops.
The driver then fled north on Union Square East, they said.
Surveillance video released by the NYPD shows Blanc standing in the crosswalk, a few feet from the curb, when the driver makes a left turn onto Union Square East from 14th Street.
Blanc was taken to NYC Health + Hospitals/Bellevue with trauma to his head and body. Later, he succumbed to his injuries, police said.
