The 44-year-old Mamaroneck resident was struck and killed around 11:20 p.m., Wednesday, July 21 in the area of 609 Mamaroneck Avenue, authorities said.
Officers responded and immediately rendered aid to the victim before he was transported to Westchester County Medical Center where he was later pronounced dead, said Mamaroneck PD Lt. Mark Gatta.
The Westchester County Department of Public Safety Accident Investigation Unit was requested to process the scene of the accident.
