A 26-year-old woman was killed in a hit-and-run at a Rego Park intersection last night, police said.
Sherena Hundalani, a resident of 98th Street, was walking on the sidewalk near 63rd Road and Queens Boulevard when a Lincoln Town Car leaving the Mobile gas station at that corner struck her at around 4:06 p.m. on Sunday.
The 55-year-old male driver of the 2005 Lincoln Town Car did not remain on the scene and fled westbound on Queens Boulevard, police said. He was ultimately stopped near 62nd Drive and Junction Boulevard, where he was then taken into custody for questioning.
Hundalani was already receiving emergency care by EMS by the time police arrived to the scene. EMS then transported her to Elmhurst Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
No arrests have been made and the investigation by the NYPD’s Highway Patrol Collision Investigation Squad is ongoing.
