A teenage boy was killed by a hit-and-run dump-truck driver in Jackson Heights, Queens, Friday morning, the police said.
The boy, whose age and name were not immediately released, was crossing Northern Boulevard in a crosswalk at 80th Street around 8:45 a.m. when the truck, headed south on 80th Street, turned right onto Northern Boulevard and struck him, the police said.
The truck, which was white and was towing a green generator, continued west on Northern Boulevard, the police said.
The crash yielded the third hit-and-run fatality in Queens in three days. On Wednesday night, a 38-year-old woman was struck and killed crossing Hillside Avenue in Floral Park, and a 30-year-old woman was killed crossing 111th Street in Jamaica.
