On Sunday night, a scooter collision with a car sent a little youngster flying, where he was killed.
In the Kingsbridge Heights neighbourhood, at the intersection of Bailey Avenue and West 193rd Street, an accident occurred around 9:30 p.m. When a car and a two-wheeled scooter driven by the boy’s father collided before the scooter hit a curb, the boy was a passenger.
The young man was rushed to St. Barnabas and was later declared dead upon arrival. He was not wearing a helmet. His father sustained no harm.
The car’s driver, according to police, stayed on the scene. Before paramedics arrived, the driver tried CPR on the youngster, according to his brother-in-law, who spoke to the media.
According to the police, Mario Rosero, the father, was detained for criminal possession of stolen property and jeopardising the welfare of a kid. (Whether that was the scooter or something else wasn’t immediately obvious.)
William Baez, 52, the car’s driver, was detained on suspicion of aggravated operating while unlicensed.
