CANARSIE — Two Brooklyn men in their sixties died Friday as a result of different car crashes, police said. 

John Dozier, 64, of East New York, was found with serious body trauma in the road at 8:25 p.m. in Canarsie, police said. 

Dozier was hit by a northbound 2012 Chevy SUV as he was trying to cross Remsen Avenue west to east near Avenue L, police said. He was rushed to Brookdale Hospital but later died, police said. No arrests had been made for the hit-and-run driver, who was a male, police said.

Earlier in the day, a Joseph Eisen, 66, from Canarsie, was killed after he veered out of his lane near Avenue S and smashed into two parked vehicles, police said.

Eisen was driving a 1992 grey Nissan Sentra southbound on Coleman Street when he collided with the unoccupied vehicles around 1 p.m., police said.

Eisen was rushed to Beth Israel Medical Center where he was pronounced dead on arrival. No other injuries were reported in the crash, and it was unclear what caused the accident, police said.

Both cases were still under investigation, police said.
