A 55-year-old man has died days after being struck by a car while crossing a street in Glendale on July 28.

Jan Galej was crossing 62nd Street near Myrtle Avenue when a 71-year-old driver in a Nissan sedan was traveling northbound on the street. When the driver passed a second car that was attempting to make a right turn onto Myrtle Avenue, he struck Galej who was in the south crosswalk, police said. 

Police who responded to the scene of the collision at 4:36 p.m. found Galej lying on the roadway with trauma about the body. He was transported to Elmhurst Hospital Center and succumbed to his injuries this Saturday, Aug. 3. 

The Nissan’s driver remained at the scene and no arrests were made, police said.
