Pedestrian hit by car and then robbed while struggling to survive on NYC street

A man was hit by a car and then robbed as he lay splayed out on the ground struggling to survive.

The 39-year-old white victim was walking on the sidewalk when a black, four-door sedan containing two black males slammed into him around 6:40 a.m. Saturday, according to police.

The video shows the victim being thrown into the air before he lands on the street.

“The individuals returned back to the scene and check the victim’s pockets before fleeing to parts unknown,” the NYPD said in a release.

An emergency crew took the victim to Lincoln Hospital, where he was listed in critical condition, cops said.

The first robber was a “male, dark complexion, thin build, Afro hair,” the NYPD said. He was last seen wearing black pants, black sneakers and a hooded sweatshirt.

The second was also described as a “male, dark complexion, thin build, Afro hair.” He was last seen wearing light colored sweatpants, a black hooded sweatshirt and sneakers.

@ron122 It would damn well be relevant if the races were reversed. Would be front page national news.

@graphite For sure. Remember when the "SUV" ran over those people in the Christmas parade?

@ron122 That just didn't fit the preferred narrative. Remember Jussie Smollet's fake attack by Trump supporters and Democrats proclaiming, "This is America in 2020!" Whole thing was a bunch of bull***
Shining democrat utopia right there

This is sn example of what the urban areas economy is like. Not just the fact that anyone robbed them.

Try paying $4,000 a month for rent on a minimum wage income for New York city on minimum wage, even state minimum wage, and see if you don't rob people when you're hungry.

Better paying jobs this simply wouldn't happen.

This doesn't even get reported in rural areas yet happens all the time. No one to report it!

It does happen in rural areas though! See your local sheriff's reports! Outright murder has been known in such cases.

No sheriff's report will make any local news any more. They use to though. Too boring now, no details!!!

It would read something like.

10:41 man hit by hit-and-run car on such and such street.

Ten other incidents

11:31 robbery repoted on such and such street.

No other details given.

I’ve heard of accidents happening intentionally in Louisiana. People who use drugs can allow themselves to be persuaded and later blame the drug saying “it wasn’t me”. I think we all know, it’s unaccetable whether voluntary or not… it still manslaughter, but still voluntary

oh shit don't go to places where liberals are all the bad people (who aren't white) will rob and kill you
Or, you could develop a brain that allows you to see utter bs put on display, yet..alas. Not to be.

As reported by actual news outlets.
Terrible city crime.. so sad.
See, when I'm in NY city and need to cross the street, I do it in a way where I don't get run over. Particularly at 6:40 am on a Saturday morning. *cough* bullshit *cough*

This title makes the guy sound like he's homeless rather than fighting for his life...
You truly are another lying con. Among a multitude of millions.

@Roundandroundwego I've been on 3 different public transit systems in the past 3 weeks. There is a problem with transients (who belong under some kind of mental health care) finding their way onto these systems. I had one challenge me to a fight on the train once. Once again, you have no idea what you're talking about.
