A man on a e-scooter was killed when a car slammed into him early Saturday in Brooklyn, police said.

The accident happened at around 2:20 a.m. when a 42 year-old man behind the wheel of a white Hyundai Elantra traveling eastbound on Fulton Street in Downtown Brooklyn made a right turn onto southbound Hoyt Street — hitting a 29-year-old on the e-scooter, who was heading east on Fulton, cops said.
