Two serious “person vs. car” accidents took place roughly 90 minutes apart on the Upper West Side Friday morning.

A 61-year-old woman was critically injured and a 64-year-old man was killed.

DNAinfo and The Post report the accident involving the woman occurred around 6:45 am at Central Park West & 102nd Street.

Later in the morning — around 8:20 am — 7-UP delivery man Luis Enriquez was struck by a moving truck on Columbus Avenue, between 72nd & 73rd.

He was taken to St. Luke’s, where he died.

DNAinfo and The Daily News have the details — DNA lists Mr. Enriquez as 62-years-old while The News reports he was 64.

Initial reports indicate no criminality is suspected in either incident.
