Man Dies After Pole Hit By MTA Bus Falls On Him In Brooklyn: Cops


According to police, Crown Headlights, Brooklyn – A man who fell on a sidewalk has died in Brooklyn last week.

Police said Lance Margolin was walking down the Eastern Parkway near Utica Avenue last Thursday when a MTA bus hit a pole and crashed.

According to police, while trying to drive a disabled vehicle on the road, the bus hit the pole.

Margolin was taken to Kings County Hospital with head and body trauma. He died in the hospital on Saturday, police said.

Police said the bus driver remained at the scene and no one else was injured.

The collision investigation team is investigating the incident.

Margolin is one of several pedestrians who have died in Brooklyn in recent weeks.

Also, on Saturday, Angel Aguler-Duron, a sanitation worker, was killed in a hit-and-run while working in Williamsburg.

Last week, a homeless man hospitalized after crossing Atlantic Avenue died of injuries. Police are also searching for the car that struck and killed an MTA bus driver on Sheppard Avenue in March.

Another fatal accident at Red Hook recently prompted renewed calls for safety improvements on the road. Also in late February, 6-year-old Simeon Fried was killed by a school bus outside his home in South Williamsburg.
