Police make an arrest in Sunnyside/Woodside hit-and-run

Feb. 3, 2014, By Christian Murray

The police have arrested a man in connection with a hit-and-run accident that left five people hurt at a bus stop on Northern Boulevard Saturday night.

The police said Luis Andrade, a 32-year-old Jackson Heights resident, has been charged with leaving the scene of an accident with a serious injury.

Andrade was arrested Sunday afternoon.

The police said Andrade struck five victims with a white Mazda sedan as they waited at a bus stop at Northern Boulevard and 48th Street at about 7:30 p.m. Saturday.

Andrade then fled the scene in the car and ditched the vehicle outside 37-59 61st Street, where it was found a short time later.

The accident left a 7-year-old girl with a skull fracture, but the injury is not considered life threatening.  The other victims suffered injuries, although none serious.

  1. Collision. Not accident. Very important distinction.

  2. Is it still possible to determine if he was high or drunk? No way, unless they can trace him back to where he was and what he was doing before the accident, which I highly doubt that cops will go as far to investigate.

  3. It was a white car!!!! Where are all the Rispoli investigators???
