NEW YORK - Police have arrested a man they say was driving a truck without a license when he struck and killed a 73-year-old man in Manhattan.

It happened just before 6 a.m. near the corner of 25th Street and Seventh Avenue in Chelsea.

Police say Sydney Jones of New Jersey was behind the wheel of a tractor trailer that hit a man as he was crossing the intersection.

The victim suffered severe head trauma, and was later pronounced dead at the hospital.

Jones, 60, remained on the scene, and has since been charged with aggravated unlicensed operation.
