A Nassau County man has been arrested for the Tuesday morning collision that left a 65-year-old pedestrian dead at a Rosedale intersection.

According to the NYPD, Kevin Dennard, 35, of Walcott Avenue in Inwood, was charged with leaving the scene of an accident. Police have not released the dead man’s identity pending notification of his family.

Officers in the NYPD’s 105th Precinct responded to a 911 call at 3:36 a.m. reporting a man laying unconscious on the pavement around the intersection of Rockaway and Brookville boulevards.

Police said he was unresponsive and suffering from trauma to his body. He was declared dead at the scene by EMS personnel.

The NYPD Highway District’s Collision Investigation Unit determined that a 2003 Toyota Camry had been traveling south on Rockaway Boulevard when it struck the man, who was walking west to east.

The NYPD said the driver was tracked down with the assistance of the Nassau County Police Department.
