Delivery Worker Killed by Drunk Driver in Brooklyn

Delivery Worker Killed by Drunk Driver in Brooklyn

Posted By Dan Flanzig || 11-Oct-2011

The driver's neighbor writes us in his defense.] A delivery worker, described by police as a 41-year-old Asian man, was killed last night in Greenpoint when a driver in a Buick struck him from behind as he waited at a stop sign. The  accident occurred around 7 p.m. at the sleepy intersection of Leonard Street and Meserole Avenue, and witness Sheryl Yvette tells us the driver also hit a livery cab minivan at the intersection. In an email, she describes the horrible scene:

I arrived before he was taken away and did not watch when they pulled out the stretcher. When I arrived he was pinned under the minivan which was headed south on Leonard St. The man was lifeless.  NYPD told me was dead, and that the driver was drunk and speeding. The driver hit the scooter with great force, knocking the livery car that was waiting at the stop sign (at Meserole) into the intersection and pinning the man and the scooter under the minivan
