We are now getting word that a fatal car accident that transpired in the intersection of Bowery and Kenmare earlier tonight. The @NYScanner Twitter handle reported not too long ago that a pedestrian was struck by a “vehicle” and was dead on arrival.

The Gothamist news map places the time of accident at roughly 8:44 pm, but it could’ve been much earlier.  There was virtually no police presence there about an hour ago.  @Newyorkist called the 5th Precinct to see what happened, but didn’t get too far.  He reported the following:

re: pedi death on Kenmare + Bowery, 5th pct. would not confirm location or severity, noting there was “accident & investigation is ongoing.”

Details are still scant, so if you have any more information, please drop us a line.

The intersection of Bowery and Delancey remains one of the most dangerous in the whole neighborhood.  It’s deadly.  Even with the aid of traffic police. You may recall that back in October, a cyclist was run down by a truck in the same intersection.
