New York Shitty Day Starter: What Happened On Bedford Avenue?

A chap named Dale (who took the above photo at North 7 Street & Bedford Avenue) writes at 12:54 a.m. in an email entitled “Traffic stopped at Bedford and North 7th”:

Don’t know what was going on.

Unfortunately, I do. Per an anonymous tipster:

On Friday March 23rd, 2012 at approximately 2200 hours, police responded to a 911 call of a pedestrian struck at the Bedford Avenue Train Station, within the confines of the 94th Precinct (Transit District 33). Upon arrival, Police determined that the victim (M/W/20) was riding the “L” line train along with the suspect (M/W/30-35) when a verbal dispute ensued. When exiting the train, the suspect initiated a physical altercation with victim resulting in both individuals falling onto the road track bed. The suspect fled the scene and the victim was struck by a Northbound train resulting in serious body trauma. EMS responded and transported the victim to Bellevue Hospital where he was later pronounced DOA. There are no arrests at this time. The investigation is ongoing.

The family has been notified and the victim has been identified

Gothamist has a very good run-down of what happened. You can read it by clicking here. (Thanks Peter for bringing this to my attention!)
