A 63-year-old production crew member was struck and killed by an SUV as he was setting up cones for a TV shoot in Brooklyn early Monday, authorities say. 

Pedro Jimenez, of Manhattan, was placing cones in the parking lane on Douglas Street shortly before 4:30 a.m. when the 2006 Ford Explorer hit him. The Ford driver stayed at the scene; Jimenez was pronounced dead at a hospital. 

Chopper 4 over the scene showed one SUV smashed into the rear of another, about a dozen orange cones scattered on the ground or squished under the vehicles. Orange cones lined the opposite side of the street as well.

Jimenez was a crew member on the Starz series "Power." Star and executive producer 50 Cent posted on Jimenez's death on his Instagram page Monday.

"My prayers and condolences are with the entire Jimenez family," the rapper and producer wrote. 

The investigation is ongoing.
