MINIVAN MOWS DOWN WOMAN, SPEEDS AWAY
Police gathering evidence in East Elmhust, Queens where a minivan driver mowed down an elderly woman crossing the street and sped away. Derrick, who works in the corner grocery. ran out to help and saw the woman on the ground; the van starting to pull away from the scene. So he chased it. On foot. Didn't catch it. Which, he told me in an interview for 1010 WINS he very much regrets. But he was able to give cops a description. Detectives also scouring security video for clues to who the driver is.
As of this writing, the woman is in critical condition in Elmhurst Hospital.
