Hit and run kills Flushing man

From the Daily News:

A man walking his dog Friday morning stumbled upon a dead body in the middle of a Queens street.

Now cops are looking for the heartless driver who struck the 41-year-old man and sped off.

"I couldn't imagine any human being leaving someone like that," said Richard, 37, who didn't want to give his last name. "I wouldn't leave him."

Richard, taking a break from doing his laundry, was walking his Rotweiller about 3:30 a.m. when he noticed Hyun He Kim lying on 149th Place in Flushing. Richard, who didn't have his cell phone, stayed with Kim until he flagged down a driver who called 911.

Police said he suffered severe head trauma.

"It was devastating," the witness said. "It wasn't something anybody should see unless they go to war."

Paramedics raced to the scene, but Kim couldn't be saved.

Prompt attention could possibly have saved his life. What a shame.

The nypd does not want moving violations summonses,they have to share the$$ with the state.It's not about public safety,it's about numbers.

GUARANTEED the driver does not have a license. Probably doesn't have documents either.
