There was a fatal hit and run scooter accident tonight at Gerritsen and Plumb 1st. The victim is said to be a local delivery driver at Lucky Star.
A white Nissan SUV type plate FHV-9034 New York, traveling south on Gerritsen Ave. at a high rate of speed and blew through the red light at Gerritsen Ave. & Avenue V, struck a delivery man from Lucky Star on Knapp St with such force that it threw him out of his shoes and socks and left blood on the plate, the delivery man landed on the hood of the car and was taken half way down the block before falling off. The scooter landed one quarter down the block from the impact. The Vollies arrived at the scene and started CPR on the delivery man due to being in Cardiac Arrest, EMS arrived and they all worked on him for five minutes before taking him to the hospital. I then noticed the Lucky Star menus in the street by the scooter and went and informed the Lucky Star about there man and they went to talk to the NYPD about him.
They have in custody an 18 y/o female in Rockaway Queens.
The Vollies and FDNY were on scene preforming cpr and transportation.
