A Port Jefferson man was struck and killed in an accident on a Huntington Station road Friday morning.

Suffolk County Police Second Squad detectives are investigating the motor vehicle crash that killed Francisco Cardozo, 53.

Jose Ramos was driving a 2006 BMW northbound on New York Avenue near the intersection of 15th Street at approximately 12:25 a.m. when his vehicle struck Cardozo, who appears to have been in the northbound lane of the road, according to police.

Cardozo was pronounced dead at the scene by a physician assistant from the Suffolk County Medical Examiner's office. Ramos, 32, of Bellport, was uninjured in the crash.

The vehicle was impounded for a safety check and the investigation is continuing.

I am so sorry that this man is dead and my condolences to the family. Until the investigation tells us what really happened, I just want to point out that New York Avenue is very dangerous that I do not let me children cross this road. With all the cars parked on New York Ave and the pedestrians crossing the road in between cars is just crazy; you are taking a bad risk. The streets are very narrow when all the cars are parked on both sides of NY Ave. This is due to all the food/Deli's stores where there is so much foot traffic. We really should have alternate parking on each side on different days. People do not look they just come right into the street. I can't tell you how many times this has happened to me. You will be driving on NYA and some just walks almost into your car while you are driving. Maybe they should also have metered parking on NYA this will eliminate the cars parking there all day. And forget about when trucks are trying to make a delivery then it is really, really crazy.
