NEW YORK - A woman has died after being pinned under a car during a hit-and-run in Queens.
Home surveillance video shows a white truck striking a parked car several times near 120th Avenue and 167th Street in South Jamaica, Queens on Sunday at about 8:33 a.m.
Three people come out onto the street to confront the truck's driver, who then speeds away, striking a 2017 Chevrolet Equinox and sending it into the trio, including a 49-year-old woman who was pinned beneath the SUV and 2021 Dodge Charger.
Neighbors could be seen running out onto the street to try and remove the woman, later identified as Florence Ngwu, 49, from underneath the car.
The truck, a 2019 Ford F550 with "Pawar Builders" — a local auto repair shop — written on the side, was abandoned at a church near 108th Street and 64th Place. It had been stolen two hours earlier, said police.
Ngwu — a mother of four and a nursing assistant — was hospitalized at Jamaica Hospital. She later died, authorities said. She worked at Silver Crest Nursing Home in Briarwood Queens for 16 years.
"Florence Ngwu was a beloved and respected caregiver and colleague who dedicated her life to helping others. We are devastated by this senseless tragedy," Silvercrest Center President Michael Tretola said. "Our thoughts are with Florence's family and friends as we all mourn this tremendous loss."
Police said the driver of the truck is still at large.
