A 22-year-old pizza delivery man died after he was mowed down by a hit-and-run driver on a Brooklyn street Thursday, cops and witnesses said.
Luis Torres was at Fort Hamilton Parkway and 59th St. on his bike delivering pies for Amnon Kosher Pizza when he was hit by a Budget box truck, police and family said.
The 25-year-old driver of the truck attempted to flee the scene of the 6:30 p.m. accident, but was apprehended by police a block away, cops said. He was expected to be charged Thursday night.
Torres was taken to Lutheran Hospital, but could not be saved.
His wife, Laura Campoberdecq, 19, was too distraught to speak.
"He was a good person," said his uncle, Edgar Ingacq, 33. "My heart is too much in pain."
Torres and his wife moved to Brooklyn from Ecuador two years ago to save money for their child, 2-year-old Kelly Denisse Inga.
