At around 1 a.m. Saturday morning, 23-year-old Jason Morales was struck and killed by a Honda sedan while walking in the middle lane of the FDR near 63rd Street. Later, at 3 a.m., a 32-year-old man suffered critical head injuries after he was hit — not fatally — by a tractor trailer as he crossed First Avenue in between 85th and 86th Streets. We know it's nearly impossible not to jaywalk, but at least be careful when doing it in the middle of the night.
