Queens: Jewish man clings to life after hit-run
A 31-year-old Queens man is fighting for his life after being mowed down last night by a hit-and-run driver and then struck again by a second vehicle, police said.
Dominik Winnick is in very critical condition at New York Hospital Queens after twice being slammed into as he crossed 108th Street at 63rd Road in Corona at about 10:30 p.m., authorities said.
Winnick, 31, was first hit by a 2010 Nissan Rogue going southbound on 108th Street.
The Rogue’s driver, Avraham Mullokandov, 17, fled the scene, police said.
Winnick was then hit by a 1998 Nissan Maxima traveling northbound on 108th Street. That motorist remained on the scene.
Winnick, who lives less than two blocks from where he was hit, was rushed to the hospital.
About 30 minutes after the crash, Mullokandov returned to the scene and was arrested, police said.
He is charged with vehicular assault, leaving the scene of an accident and violating the terms of his restricted license, police added.
