A Brooklyn man was fatally struck by a motorist while lying in the middle of a Ridgewood crosswalk early Sunday morning, police said.

Jose Luis Flores-Sanchez, 29, was hit at around 2:35 a.m. while he was lying in the intersection at the corner of Menahan Street and Cypress Avenue, according to police.

Police said that a 64-year-old man in a 2015 Toyota Sienna—who was traveling southbound on Cypress Avenue—struck Flores-Sanchez while making a left turn with a green light.

A video of the incident, obtained by the Daily News, reportedly shows Flores-Sanchez in the middle of the crosswalk, lying down on the ground with his face-up and his knees bent. He was reportedly intoxicated.

Flores-Sanchez was transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead. The driver remained at the scene.
