As Eyewitness News has reported, the first incident occurred around 10 p.m. on Monday May 13th when a 63-year-old woman was struck while crossing Queens Boulevard in Rego Park.

Thankfully, she was rushed to Elmhurst Hospital for treatment. However, the perpetrator didn't escape justice for long, they later turned themselves in at the 112th Precinct, though charges are pending from the police.

In this separate incident, a gray Honda CRV was reported to have struck the man before fleeing. Although the victim was taken to Brookdale Hospital in stable condition, the circumstances surrounding this incident suggest it may have been fueled by road rage.
