A 19-year-old pedestrian was killed in Woodside Saturday night after being struck by car at the intersection of Broadway and 58th Street.
The police said that Luis Bravo, a Queens resident, was walking eastbound on Broadway at 58 Street at around 11:05 pm, when a dark colored sedan, traveling southbound on Broadway, struck him and subsequently fled the scene.
EMS responded to the scene and transported Bravo to Elmhurst Hospital, where he was pronounced dead on arrival.
No arrest(s) have been made and the investigation is ongoing.
WELL GUESS WHAT I KNEW THE GUY. HE WAS MY FRIEND, MY NEIGHBOR, MY FAMILY…IF YOU PEOPLE DONT ACCEPT WHAT HAPPENED DONT. YOU WERENT THE ONES WHO LOST, BUT I DID
maybe he was a good kid but maybe it wans’t the driver that killed him…nope it was his Iphone….he was so wrapped up in it he walked right into a moving traffic..
maybe you are a wreckk as a driver no wonder you are giving examples of what luis was doing!!! Maybe you had experience i hope they investigate you or something wat ever you are saying about luis is probably the type of person and idiot you are fucking PUTO !!!!!!!!!!
luis was the best human being and friend
Hey you dumb asses that are talking shit I knew the kid he was my co worker show some respect assholes and hope
They catch the responsible that took the live of this poor kid he was a great guy I will
Never forget him RIP Luis
Hey Anon……..what if Luis was drunk and texting while not looking at the traffic
You have to look at both sides equally to make a honest decision as to who was at fault.
Maybe the driver did nothing wrong UNTIL he left the scene….
first of all… all these comments are stupid and disrespectful # 1 he was coming home from work late at night and #2 it isnt his fault if he was hit by a drunk driver or by a person who was texting amd driving luis will be forever missed by all of us
The driver was just trying to thin out the herd…
I saw him exactly that night around 10ish when I went for a jog. He was with one of his friends and I didn’t say hi, cuz I thought he didn’t noticed me.He’s my coworker and I just met him this Friday. It’s crazy how life works. My prayers go to his family.
” check out training for safety driving school on facebook and like us” see all the stories and become a safer driviner as the same time.
” Its is like the wild wild west out there…. no rules and no watching anymrore…. driviers need to be more respecful and walkers need to llook more and be more responsble…. it is a horrible siuuation…need more defensive driving courses and more careful walking the stretets…. take some lessons at tfs driving school at 51 street and 43rd ave and lean how to drivine and watch and look… and save some lives!!!!!!
I’m not saying that the pedestrian is not at fault, but the words that you wrote on this forum are egregious. Luis Bravo is somebody’s son. Let him rest in peace and let’s at least give the parents the perception that their fellow neighbors are not cold hearted idiots. I have lived in Sunnyside my entire life and Queens Blvd. has ALWAYS been a problem. Only maybe 10 or so years ago was it dubbed the ‘Boulevard of Death’. Both pedestrians and car driver’s are at fault. The pedestrians want to play chicken with the cars, beat the traffic, in order to make the light and catch the 7 train that’s coming in. The DOT even installed wrought iron fencing to prevent people from walking on the outer ledge and now they walk on the outer ledge of that fencing. Crazy! Then even though the speed limit is 30mph on Queens Blvd.. most drivers want to do 40mph plus. The actions of both the pedestrians & the drivers spell a recipe for disaster. May Luis Bravo RIP!
Some people feel it’s always the pedestrian or the bike rider that is to blame. They don’t need the facts, just the general idea of what happened. In spite of all the crazy drrivers speeding around the neighborhood, it’s never their fault. Probably a driver who had a few drinks and drove away before the cops arrived.
He was walking ON a dark street at night. Bad decision- stay on the sidewalk. Driver probably panicked but should have remained at the scene, of course.
As a pedestrian I don’t walk in the street unless I look both ways even when I have the light. Unless the car ran the light, the kids to blame and another Darwin Award is handed out.
I have a heart but from what i see as a driver the Pedestrian is to blame for the accident a lot more times then you realize.
Maybe he just walked in front of a car and Poof he’s a gonner. But the driver should always stop and yell at he idiot pedestrian..
Wooowww is amazing how cold hearted people can be . Maria and rikki i really hope god protects you and your families and this never happens to you .. But seriously i really hope you two get hit by a train and crushed .
This is not an appropriate article to post jokes or sarcastic comments!
Maria and riki do u have any hearts at all??? Move. Please move from Sunnyside
how do you know that Luis wasn’t just yappin away and forgot to look both ways?
I’d be yelling at him with his head split open and demanding the offers write him a jaywalking ticket…..cant let my insurance company pay a fraudulent claim and raise MY rates…now can i?
“Luis, what you do this time? Why you always getting into trouble, Louis? What you doing, why you don’t pay no attention to the road Louis?”
my god what is going on around here between astoria sunnyside and woodside this is getting out of hand — i hope they catch all of the hit and run drivers out there
The scumbag driver was probably drunk.
Sympathies to the family.
