A person was found lying injured in the middle of Pennsylvania Avenue in East New York Saturday morning.

She was taken to Brookdale Hospital where she was pronounced dead.

Police say they are investigating the incident as a possible hit-and-run, but there was no car around at the scene, so they are not saying exactly what happened to her.
