Hit and run driver kills pedestrian in Astoria, Queens
Witnesses tell 1010 WINS 21-year-old Betty Jean Dibiasio was crossing 19th street at Ditmars blvd near Astoria Park when a black car flew through the stop sign and slammed into her - tossing her into the air before she crashed down on the pavement. EMS came quickly - but the witnesses say she appeared to be unresponsive. She was later declared dead at Elmhurst hospital. Neighbors say aggressive driving near the park is a serious problem.
