Cops cordon off the corner of East 24th Street and Kings Highway Tuesday following a fatal pedestrian accident involving an 18-wheeler. Officials said that the unnamed victim was stepping into the intersection just before 11 a.m. on May 13 when he was struck down. Paramedics rushed him to Lutheran Medical Center in critical condition. He died of his injuries a short time later, officials said. No summonses were given to the driver, who remained at the scene. The name of the victim had not been released at press time. Witnesses said that Jewish volunteers were seen collecting blood spilled at the scene for burial, leading them to believe that the victim was a religious Jew.
