A 97-year-old man was killed when an SUV jumped the curb and slammed him through a Brooklyn bank’s glass doors, police said Thursday.

Volf Ferdman was sitting on his walker in front of an Apple Bank in Brighton Beach when the 79-year-old driver of a 2008 Cadillac Escalade tried to pull out of his parking spot about 3:45 p.m. Wednesday

The driver jumped the curb on Brighton Beach Ave. near Brighton 4th St. and struck Ferdman, pinning him between the front bumper and the shattered glass doors of the bank.

Medics rushed Ferdman, who lived a few blocks from where he was struck, to NYU Langone Hospital - Brooklyn, where he died.

The driver was not hurt and faced no immediate charges.
