CROWN HEIGHTS - An elderly man was killed in a hit-and-run accident on Albany Avenue in Crown Heights Tuesday, police say.

Security video shows two drivers fleeing the scene, according to investigators.

Authorities say the 93-year-old victim had just parked his car and stepped out when he was hit by a tractor-trailer and then run over by another car.

Both drivers drove off and left the man in the street, officials say.

The security video also shows someone approach and look at the victim before walking away. Police say it's unclear if that person was one of the drivers.

The victim was rushed to Kings County Hospital and pronounced dead.

Area residents say the victim was well-known and friendly.

Police say they hope the surveillance video will help to identify the two hit-and-run drivers.
