A 54-year-old Uber passenger was just five blocks from her Queens home when she was killed by a hit-and-run driver in a Lamborghini on Christmas Eve, police said Friday.
Ritawantee Persaud was riding in the back of a black 2018 Toyota Camry driven by a 50-year-old Uber driver when the car was struck on Rockaway Blvd. in Ozone Park about 7:05 p.m. Thursday.
The Uber was making a left onto 103rd Ave. when it was struck by a man driving a Lamborghini Urus, police said.
The Lamborghini overturned from the impact while the Camry was left a twisted wreck on the sidewalk next to a church.
Persaud died at Jamaica Hospital from head and body trauma, police said. Medics took her driver to the same hospital in stable condition with head and leg injuries.
The Lamborghini driver ran off, leaving his 26-year-old passenger behind in the flipped SUV, according to cops. Medics took her to Jamaica Hospital in stable condition.
Cops found marijuana in the overturned sports vehicle, police sources said.
The Lamgorghini SUV retails for upwards of $200,000 and gets just 12 miles per gallon in the city.
