It doesn’t say that she was crossing in the middle of the street, but a witness said that the car had a loud exhaust. I’m in Queens and there are too many of those kind of cars that sound more like motorcycles. They’re beyond noisy, disturbing, make my room shake when they go by and they’re always!! speeding on residential streets – whether main roads or side streets. They go through red lights and stop signs and are reckless and a danger to everybody! With history of sooo many accidents at this intersection plus no police action taken anywhere in NYC against maddening increasing speeding, resembling drag racing on city avenues and FDR – it seems unlikely anyone will look at evidence gathered by NYPD COLLISION INVEST SQUAD, except to say they DID investigate! That’s what happens when the liberals support black lives matter and defund the police…we are now seeing the effects!!!
