More on Fatal Pedestrian Accident at Bowery and Kenmare

A bit more information is coming to light regarding yesterday’s fatal pedestrian accident in the intersection of Bowery and Kenmare.  Streetsblog is reporting that the incident occurred at 1:45 pm, and not 8:44 pm as speculated earlier.

Moreover, the victim was reportedly a 54-year-old Asian man, who was later pronounced dead at Bellevue Hospital.  Still no word on the driver or the vehicle.  And commenter Bowery Boy had a good point that should be reiterated here:

I’d be willing to bet that whatever it was it was coming from the bridge, not going toward it or north-south. I just don’t understand why our elected leaders can’t simply look at the massive amount of traffic that this bridge dumps onto our tiny island, and see the inherent danger where the roads get even tinier that begs for a traffic solution.
