Brooklyn - Limo rider killed in wrong-way dragging horror
A man was killed in Brooklyn last night after the limo he just exited began rolling backwards and pinned him against another vehicle, cops said.
Viktor Avaveyev, 53, and two relatives were being escorted out of the limo around 6:50 p.m. at Kings Highway and Bedford Avenue in Midwood when the tragedy occurred, cops said.
The driver mistakenly put the car in reverse instead of park and it started moving.
“I heard an impact and a woman screaming,” said witness Yevgeniy Zilberman.
“When I looked out, she was smacking the limo driver and yelling at him. There man was lying on the floor he must have backed right over him,” Zilberman, 27, said.
The driver, whose name was withheld, was taken into custody, cops said.
Charges were pending early today.
