A woman was killed and her husband hurt when a drag-racing car hopped the curb and struck them in Brooklyn early Monday, police said. 

Three motorists were drag-racing at Eastern Parkway and Utica Avenue in Crown Heights around 3 a.m. when one of the drivers — inside a Dodge Charger — hopped the curb, police said. 

The vehicle rammed into a 20-year-old woman and her 23-year-old husband standing on the sidewalk at a bus stop, authorities said. 

The woman was pronounced dead at the scene and the man was taken to the Kings County Hospital Center in stable condition, with a leg injury, cops said. 

The Charger driver abandoned his ride and hopped into one of the other vehicles, a black and silver sedan, cops said. 

No arrests have been made. 

In a separate early Monday accident, a homeless man in his 50s walked into the middle of the Harlem River Drive near Dyckman Street in the Fort George section of Manhattan around 5:45 a.m. and was struck by an oncoming vehicle, cops said. 

The unidentified man was pronounced dead at the scene. 

The driver remained on scene, and no arrests were made, police said.
