BOROUGH PARK, Brooklyn — An 81-year-old man died a week after he was struck by a vehicle in Brooklyn earlier this month.

Police responded to a motor vehicle collision involving a pedestrian struck on 13th Avenue along 53rd Street on Jan. 14 around 10 p.m.

When officers arrived, they were informed that a man was lying on the roadway with head trauma.

The pedestrian, later identified as James Bright, died from his injuries a week later, police said.

Investigation revealed a vehicle was traveling west on 53rd Street and struck Bright while attempting to make a left turn, police said.

The driver remained at the scene.

No arrests have been made.

Bright is one of the latest pedestrians to be fatally struck by a vehicle in New York City within the past month.
