The “Boulevard of Death” lived up to its infamous nickname once again on Saturday night.

Around 8:30 p.m., a woman in her 60s was killed after she was struck by a car at the intersection of 71st Avenue and the Queens Boulevard service road in Forest Hills, according to police.

When paramedics arrived, the woman was unconscious, unresponsive and suffering from head trauma.

She was transported to Jamaica Hospital Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead on arrival.

Authorities have yet to publicly identify the woman. The driver of the vehicle remained at the scene and was not arrested.

Police said the woman was walking in the crosswalk across the westbound service road, which police described as northbound, against the pedestrian cross signal when she was struck by the motorist.

The driver had a steady green light and stopped immediately after striking the woman.

The investigation is ongoing.
