[Ed. – “And tonight’s lead story. A New York man runs over a pedestrian…”]
BC correspondent Brian Ross smashed his BMW into a jaywalking pedestrian outside the network’s studios on the Upper West Side Sunday evening, authorities said.
The man he hit, a 52-year-old former taxi driver from Queens, suffered a broken left arm, bruises and back pain.
“I said, ‘I know this guy, I’ve seen his face!’ ” injured ex-hack Roman Dati told The Post on Monday of the journalist who appears on such programs as “20/20” and “Good Morning America.”
Cops said Ross, 65, was turning left from 67th Street onto Columbus Avenue at around 6 p.m. when Dati stepped into the path of his black 2013 7 Series Beemer.
Ross had the right of way, turning with the light, when he struck Dati, law-enforcement sources said. There were no drugs or alcohol involved, police said, and no summonses or charges were filed.
