Brooklyn pedestrian struck by hit-and-run driver dies of injuries 12 years later



A pedestrian struck in Brooklyn has died of his injuries 12 years later — and the hit-and-run driver who sped off was never caught, police said Monday.

Anthony Alvelo, now 63, was hit as he crossed 12th St. at Third Ave. in Gowanus about 6 p.m. Jan 21, 2012.

The heartless driver, heading north on Third Ave., kept going as Alvelo was thrown to the ground, suffering head and body injuries.

Medics took the victim to what was then Lutheran Medical Center in stable condition with head and body trauma.

Alvelo died on June 2. He had been living in a long-term care nursing home in Kensington.

Cops say they are still investigating the crash.
