A 31-year-old man was crossing 108th St. at 63rd Rd. in Corona about 10:30 p.m. when he was hit by a 2010 Nissan Rogue that sped away southbound, cops said.

The collision knocked the man into the northbound lanes, where he was struck by another car. That motorist remained at the scene, police said.

The pedestrian was rushed to New York Hospital Queens in Flushing but could not be saved. He was not immediately identified.

Police picked up 17-year-old Avraham Mullokandov at his house in Rego Park early Sunday morning. Investigators traced the vehicle to a nearby residence and arrested 17-year-old Avraham Mullokandov

He was arrested and charged with vehicular assault, leaving the scene of an accident and violating the terms of his restricted license, police said.

Part of the education of every Jewish child should be a trip to a courthouse and to be placed in the "bull-pen" in order to experience first hand what might be the consequences of breaking the law. Most normal "children" will then be more aware of where their actions may lead them----AND their parents.

B'h my kids didn't need a trip to the courthouse as part of their chinuch lesson. As for off the derech kids, a "trip to the courthouse" won't steer them back to the right track.

Why can't these Russians stay out of trouble? The problem is that once they come here, they don't know what to do with all of that freedom. The old Soviet Union would have sent such law breakers to a labor camp?

this is why no one under age of 18 should be behind the wheel.

There has been a number of incidents of frum drivers being careless. This is not the Jewish way! Torah teaches us to care about another persons life like our own. Let us star teaching our children the Torah way!

Maybe Parents have to be smarter and understand that 17 year olds don't necessarily need to have a driver's license!!! That is a privilege and not a right. And if you do allow them to, then it is up to YOU to monitor their driving. A 17 year old with a restricted license should not be driving alone at night. And if you allow them to be driving at night YOU need to drum into them what to do in case of an accident.

Parents need to understand that THEY are going to be responsible for what their minor children do. They can be charged with any form of neglect, they can be sued, they can lose their home and all their assets. When YOU allow your child to get behind the wheel of a car, YOU are also taking on a huge responsibility.

And again unless someone knows this kid, don't go making up stories of OTD or anything else. Accidents do happen, and kids do panic. The article does not say that the car was speeding when he hit the pedestrian, it says it "sped" away after he was hit. It does not say whether or not the pedestrian was crossing at the corner, against or with a light, etc. Nor if he was wearing all black or if he was easily seen. So don't jump to conclusions.

17 is old enough to be tried as an adult. What difference does a year span between 17 to 18 make? Do people become more responsible? I deal with morons everyday who are in their mid 20 and 30s. We have such laws. They only work when people actually care to read them and follow them. No new laws will prevent ignorance and stupidity. The parents should take responsibility for raising their kids and instilling basic values and responsibilities.

Good comments...I hope that the Queens County District Attorney Richard Brown follows thru and prosecutes to the fullest extent the law allows. I'm sure some slick lawer will come up with a great sob story in an attempt to get the guy off. Jewish or Gentile if proven guilty he should get some serious jail time.

This differs greatly from some other stories reported recently. The driver left the scene, an absolute felony. Please do not lump all cases together.
Not seeing a pedestrian might cause an accident where the driver might ultimately be found at fault or not, leaving the scene is a pure crime in most cases.

People should NEVER leave the scene of an accident because when they are caught they will be worse off.

What difference does it make if the kid is Russian or Martian, off the derech or frum, Jewish or not?? The posters here always have to hypothesize - as if they are personally "in the know." If you know the facts, fine, then comment. Otherwise keep your fictional accounts of the incident to yourself and the let the court system deal with the accused.

We don't give anyone this beautiful country. If you earn the right to live here then you have a responsibility to obey every law. If you cannot then you must leave.

Yes, every year in a child's life makes a difference. There is a difference between a 17 year old and an 18 year old. They have year longer to learn responsibility, a year longer to learn accountability, a year longer to develop common sense, etc. A year longer for their brain to develop! Every single year counts in the development of a child!

As for 20 and 30 year old morons, well, I can't account for them, but I can tell you from working with kids, absolutely every day counts, and certainly every year does to.

Absolutely, I agree with you. And what does a kid do? Especially a 17 year old on a restricted license? He panics and runs instead of stopping the car and call his parents or police. It might not have been his fault at all. The pedestrian could have been drunk, could have crossing against a light, might have been wearing clothing that was not visible. All these things might have been taken into account. But the fact that he left the scene of the accident makes him guilty.

Nothing personal but the so called beautiful women that you are fantasizing about most probably wouldn't even date a Russian much less.......... So if that's why they are coming here I am a little perplexed to say the least.

Torah teaches us that Dina Dmalchusa Dina,, meaning that we have to abide by the law of the land. Lots of kids dont realize this, as it up to their parents to teach them. Chanoich Lnoiar al pi darkoy. It is the parents responsibility to get that message accross to their children.

I experience first hand with bukarians so it's not so far fetched for those who are saying there is a problem with them in particular but we also have to remember the incident in flatbush about two months ago when the girl was killed while in a car with an underaged driver they were pure American

You find very little intermarriage among the Russians, you know why? Because they are better looking then the Jewish Americans.

Very well said, I agree 100%. Many immature people. Age is truly just a number. Not everyone is blessed with such responsible parents either. Very complicated issue.. All these bias opinions are making me sick. Its just proving how many more morons there are out there. I mean read these comments. They are just so pathetic and ignorant, racist and prejudice.
