Man Dies in Brooklyn Hit-and-Run Incident
Brooklyn, NY – Allegedly, a scooter rider was hit by a 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee at about 12:30 a.m. of June the 23rd near the intersection of Avenue North and East 98th Street in Canarsie. After the crash, the Jeep driver lost control of the massive SUV, hit a tree and smashed into several parked, unoccupied vehicles. The Jeep operator, together with the passenger, fled the scene on foot, leaving their victim to die. The victim (whose identity was not released immediately) was rushed to Brookdale Hospital, but couldn’t be saved.
