Police collared a pickup truck driver who fatally struck an senior woman as she attempted to cross a street in Flushing last month.

Police say that Jian Qu, 50, was driving on Linden Place in a Nissan pickup truck Sept. 3 at 11:55 a.m. After stopping at the intersection, Qu made a left turn onto 35th Avenue and struck 78-year-old Yi Zhan, who was crossing the street in a marked crosswalk, according to authorities.

Zhan, who sustained a head injury and other critical injuries as a result of the incident, was rushed to New-York Presbyterian Hospital, where she ultimately succumbed to her injuries, police said.

Qu was arrested Oct. 10 and charged with failure to yield to a pedestrian and failure to exercise due care.

Driving In Long Island is just as bad if not Worse than driving through minority communities. Miniorities at least have the excuse of not speaking or reading English. What’s the excuse of crapppy drivers that were born here? They must just be useless.
