A security guard from the Transit Authority's College Point bus depot was killed in last night's Queens pedestrian struck. He was crossing the Whitestone Expressway, apparently to go to Burger King, when he was struck.

Investigators say he was hit by as many as two vehicles and pronounced dead at the scene.

Eyewitness News has learned he was an MTA subcontractor, employed by Summit Security.

One driver, 65-year-old Harley Greenfield, stayed at the scene. He refused to take a breathalyzer exam, authorities say.

He was charged with driving while impaired and more charges could be added.

A second driver is believed to have left the scene.

The crash was witnessed by an MTA bus driver on the QM2A line. Officials say he called for help, but the guard could not be saved.
