A woman crossing the street in Flatbush was struck and killed by an 18-wheeler in a hit-and-run early Wednesday morning, police said.

Linda Douglass, 67, was crossing Flatbush Avenue at Nostrand Avenue around 4:45 a.m. when the blue flatbed tractor trailer slammed into her.

She died at the scene.

The truck driver, who was later found by cops, said he did not know he hit Douglass. He was not charged with a crime.

Cops released surveillance video Wednesday of the truck slowly driving away after the crash.

The NYPD’s Collision Investigation Squad will continue to look into the crash.
