The Brooklyn driver who accidentally punched his girlfriend as she got into his car, fatally driving her in the path of another vehicle, has been arrested for suspending a driver’s license, police officers said Monday.
Curiously, Michel, 48, failed to notice that just after 2 a.m. Sunday, his girlfriend, 46, tried to get into his Jeep Cherokee at St. John’s Place and Rochester Avenue in Crown Heights as he pulled away – which resulted in that she fell into the street, police said.
The woman – whose name was not released until the family was notified – was then hit by the driver of a black SUV in St Johns Place, police officers said. The SUV driver fled the scene of the accident, police said.
The woman was taken to Kings County Hospital and pronounced dead, according to police.
Michel remained at the scene and was handcuffed when police found he was driving on a suspended license, authorities said.
He was charged with aggravated unlawful operation of a motor vehicle and beaten for violating license restrictions, police officers said.
The SUV driver is still in the wind.
