Two guys lost their lives in separate hit-and-run accidents in New York City.

Detectives are on the trail of two hit-and-run drivers suspected of killing two people in New York City.

Brooklyn and the Bronx each lost a man early Saturday morning due to two separate hit-and-run accidents—one occurring on a notorious street where another man was ran over and left for dead a week earlier.

Cops said they are searching for the two drivers, one in a silver SUV and the other in a white Mercedes.

A 63-year-old man named Daryl Brown was struck and killed by a speeding SUV in Crown Heights around 3:15 a.m. on Saturday.

In the last two weeks alone, a hit-and-run driver has claimed the lives of two men on Atlantic Ave., according to authorities.

On October 15, a hit-and-run driver struck and killed Jose Ramos, 56, in Cypress Hills at the intersection of Atlantic Avenue and Essex St. — just three miles from the tragic incident on Saturday.

When the automobile slammed into Ramos, he'd just ended his night job at a neighborhood bodega, and his wife Martha Rodriguez was just behind him, according to police.

There have been no arrests as of yet.

A white Mercedes Benz struck and killed another man in North Riverdale about an hour after the incident on Nostrand Ave. on Saturday, authorities said.

About 4:30 a.m., a luxury automobile slammed into the man as he crossed the street near Broadway and W. 262nd St., according to police.

The victim was crossing Nostrand Ave. in Brooklyn when an SUV struck him. The SUV was traveling southbound at the time.
