An out-of-control driver fatally struck a man on a scooter before plowing into an outdoor dining set-up in Queens on Thursday night, police and sources said.
The 61-year-old female motorist and other pedestrians were also injured in the smash-up outside Rosatoro at the corner of 35th Street and Ditmars Boulevard at about 7:45 p.m., according to police and sources.
Sources said it appeared the driver suffered a medical episode before crashing into the scooter driver, a 29-year-old man, and into the dining area outside the peruvian restaurant.
The victims were all taken to local hospitals, where the 29-year-old man was pronounced dead, sources and authorities said.
It was not immediately clear if any victims were outdoor diners.
Scores of people gathered around the scene Thursday night as police closed off the intersection, according to social media footage.
