Woman seriously injured after hit-and-run accident in South Jamaica, Queens

SOUTH JAMAICA, Queens (WABC) – A woman is in hospital with serious injuries after being pinned under a car in a violent act of road rage.

Video shows the driver of a white Ford 550 ramming a parked car multiple times near 120th Avenue and 167th Street in South Jamaica, Queens.

Three people rush into the street and try to talk to the driver.

That’s when the driver accelerates sending an SUV into a 49-year-old woman who becomes trapped under the vehicle.

She was taken to Jamaica Hospital where police said she was unlikely to survive her injuries.

The truck driver drove to a church near 108th Street and 64th Square where he abandoned the vehicle.

The abandoned truck has the name of a local auto repair shop, “Pawar Builders” written on the side in blue.

The owner could not be reached for comment.

The police are still looking for the suspect.
The hit-and-run happened just days after Mayor Eric Adams announced a crackdown on reckless drivers in response to a spike in pedestrian crashes.
