A 61-year-old woman fatally struck a man with her PT Cruiser late on Saturday night as he attempted to make his way across Nostrand Avenue in Sheepshead Bay.

The elderly driver was passing through the intersection at Avenue W heading north at 11:10 pm, when she struck 44-year-old Jose Santiago.

Santiago suffered massive head trauma, according to police, and the driver’s windshield was shattered by the impact.
