Flushing, NY – City Council Member Peter Koo stated the following regarding this morning’s fatal hit-and-run crash on Parsons and 32nd Avenue in Flushing.
“My heart goes out to the victim and family of this horrible hit-and-run. To lose an elderly family member to such a cowardly act is truly devastating. Too many of our neighbors, friends, and families have suffered irreparably at the hands of irresponsible and unethical drivers. I encourage everyone commuting, especially in these winter conditions, to pay attention to your surroundings and travel defensively. The responsibility for safe streets lies with all of us. I also ask that anyone with information about this incident to contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.”
