Queens, NY (December 13, 2023) โ€“ A 20-year-old man from Maspeth was charged on several counts after an alleged hit-and-run incident involving a 3-year-old child on Thursday.

According to the allegations, the incident occurred at around 6:30 p.m., when the man was driving his 2014 Infiniti Q50 near the intersection of College Point Boulevard and 41st Avenue. Allegedly, the driver jumped the curb and hit a child who was walking ahead of his dad along the street. Per officials, the driver slowed down or stopped the car before fleeing the scene. After being transported to a nearby hospital, the child was declared dead due to serious head and neck injuries. Authorities stated the vehicle was located four blocks from the deadly crash the next night; it was parked next to a fire hydrant and had blood on the driver’s side kickboard.

The man was apprehended shortly thereafter. An investigation still remains active, however, and no additional details were released.

We extend our deepest condolences to the deceased child’s family.
