Police say just before 4 a.m. on Sunday, June 13, 47-year- old Mohammed Hossain was driving home a passenger in Maspeth when 22-year-old Erik Chimborazo of Brooklyn T-boned Hossain’s SUV at Fresh Pond Road and Eliot Avenue, killing the Lyft driver, a father of three. Chimborazo was drunk, uninsured and unlicensed. He left the scene, then returned, and was arrested. Judge Jerry Iannece set bail at $10,000 instead of remanding him and he jumped bail. The Hossain family may never see justice and it is believed that Chimborazo is in another country by now. Great job by the judge!
