STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — A “highly intoxicated” homeless man died from injuries he suffered when a driver crashed into him in Staten Island then fled the scene, police said Tuesday.

It happened about 4:20 a.m. Aug. 17 at Ebbitts Street and Hylan Boulevard, police said.

There, officers found Robert Roesch, 54, complaining of a broken leg and saying he had been hit by a car, according to NYPD. Roesch was inebriated at the time he was found and the driver who hit him was nowhere to be seen, police said.
