From NY Daily News:
A hit-and-run driver mowed down a 48-year-old Queens man at a McDonald’s drive-thru window early Saturday — then heartlessly stopped to pick up his fast food order, cops and witnesses said.
The driver, still on the loose, critically injured his victim, who had fallen down in the drive-thru lane of the McDonald’s on Merrick Blvd. near 244th St. in Laurelton moments before the 4:55 a.m. accident.
“The guy, I think he was drunk, was in the drive-thru leaning on a car randomly,” said the restaurant’s night manager, Jonathan Brown, 18.
“Then he fell and I thought he was dead so I went to call the cops. Thirty seconds later a car came and just hit him.”
Brown said the victim struggled to move while the Nissan was still on top of him.
“It’s ridiculous to have to see that,” Brown said.
“I’m traumatized. He ran over his head and the guy was trying to get up with the car still on top of him!”
In disbelief, Brown watched as the driver backed up off the man and proceeded to the pickup window.
“The car just backed up and drove around him and picked up his food,” said the stunned and disgusted Brown.
The horrified manager didn’t have time to alert his employees, who did not see the accident, to what was happening.
The fiend fled with his fast food.
EMS workers rushed the victim to Jamaica Hospital, where he was listed in critical but stable condition, cops said.
Police were still hunting for the driver Saturday night.
In May, the City Council passed a resolution pushing the state to increase penalties on drivers who leave the scenes of accidents.
The next month, Mayor de Blasio signed a sweeping package of 11 laws designed to crack down on reckless drivers and advance his ambitious plan, dubbed Vision Zero, to eliminate traffic deaths in the city.
On Sept. 23, the City Council passed a law slapping drivers with fines of up to $10,000 for leaving the scene of an accident.
