Police in Queens are investigating after a man was struck and killed by a police car Thursday morning.

Police say the officers were driving down 40th Avenue in Astoria when they hit a man crossing mid-block near 10th Street.

He died at the scene.

Police say the car's emergency lights were on, but it's not clear if the sirens were on as well. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
