Several separate accidents on the city’s streets left one dead and one other seriously injured on late Saturday, according to the police.
A 31 year old man was hit by a 20120 Nissan Rogue that rushed away southbound while crossing 108th St. at 63rd Rd in Corona at around 10:30 in the evening, according to the cops.
The impact had knocked the man across the northbound lanes and was then again hit by another vehicle. The driver had stayed on the scene, police say.
The victim, whose identity was not revealed immediately, was transported to New York Hospital Queens in Flushing and was reported to be in a critical condition on a Sunday afternoon.
The driver who had hit-and-run, 17 year old Avraham Mullokandov, who resides nearby, had came back rto the scene of accident 30 minutes after. Cops had arrested him and was charged with vehicular assault, leaving the scene of an accident and violation of the terms of his restricted license, according to the police.
Meanwhile, a few hours earlier on Saturday, a two car collision at an intersection near Staten Island Expressway had killed an elderly passenger in one of the involved vehicles.
No criminal involvement was suspected in the 8:40 p.m. crash at Hylan Blvd. at Steuben Street, police say. The victim, an 82 year old woman, was seated in the back right seat of a Mercedes-Benz that was heading south on Hylan Blvd.
A Pontiac that was going north had attempted to make a left turn at the intersection but unfortunately smashed into the right side of the Mercedes-Benz, according to the police.
The elderly woman, who was not identified, perished in a local hospital. Five others were involved in the accident—three from the Mercedes and a man and a woman from the Pontiac—and had received medical attention at Staten Island University North Hospital and were reported to be in stable condition, police say.
