Officers said they found him with trauma to his head after he was hit on the right shoulder of the parkway. Staab was pronounced dead at Jacobi Medical Center.
The driver of the car that hit Staab was a 62-year-old man who lost control of his car, according to the preliminary investigation. He remained on the scene.
