Gerald Walpin, 84, a former White House-appointed watchdog, was fatally struck by an SUV, officials confirmed.
Walpin was crossing the street at 79th Street and Lexington Avenue when a 52-year-old driver, whose name has not been released, made a left turn at the intersection and struck him.
Walpin was transported to New York Presbyterian Hospital with head trauma, but he was pronounced dead from his injuries at the hospital.
The driver remained at the scene. No charges or arrests have been made.
