Were they caught?
How bout now
I don’t know why but this is my favourite comment on Reddit today
Its kinda funny lol
I was really mad when I went to the comments then immediately cracking up.. what a rollercoaster
Let's all be honest. That's why we come to this place still.
Therapist - "How does that make you feel" Reddit - "yes"
That's okay. Take your time.
If you ask one more time if they were caught yet, I will make you get off Reddit and go outside for a walk! Do I make myself clear?
*Do you want her to turn the car around?*
Don't make me make you go outside & get me a switch for your legs, and it better be long & won't break on first hit or I'll go pick a worse one!
Yeah was totally never told this when I was a kid.
Seriously though, I truly hope they're ok.
But I wanna know!
In this case, yes
But, where they caught yet
Did they get them yet?
I think this is the first time I actually laughed at a comment on reddit
Depression is a treatable disorder.
But unfortunately, permanent.
Not taking you on road trips
Reference to The Naked Gun?
Reference to real life
How about now?
Can you make this a thing and do it all over Reddit. It’s funny
please tell us, I must witness the sentencing
If they do get arrested they will be out on 0 bond in less than 4 hours, this is NYC.
If only there were a police car nearby that was idling and ready to pursue. (As soon as the baby was picked up)
The police have an obligation to stay and make sure the victim(s) receive the help they may need. That's a pretty standard operating procedure. On top of that, most agencies have policies that don't even allow pursuits.
That was the job of the officers car on the right. Before the suspect drives off, the officer addressing him points to the patrol car on the right to initiate a pursuit. Unfortunately the POS hit the mother and her child. End result, initial pursuit cannot continue due to injured bystanders
The cop already outside the car can't radio for an ambulance while the other cop, in the car, begins a pursuit?
Idiot was caught, baby only had a wrist injury
that’s incredible, first positive update i see here
Thanks for this. It is the comment I needed to see after watching the video.
Thank lord the baby was ok
As a pregnant mom with one child already, this literally made me breath a sigh of relief to lnow that sweet child and the mom are doing ok and that dirt bag was caught
I have 3 daughters, I needed to know
no they found the vehicle abandoned a few blocks away. they will find the perp
Yeah In NY no chance they got away clean
But also, it’s NY, so they’ve probably been caught, processed and released more than once.
they always do
Still nothing but I hope they have a plate for that car. He also hit 2 other people with the mother and the baby so they will find him soon. NYC is a little difficult when it comes to finding someone but in time they will!
Have they been identified?
It’s nyc are you joking? This is just another day in the big city.
Was the child okay?
Child and mother were taken to hospital with minor inguries
And the guy in the lime shirt tried to help the mother and child but failed and instead got a leg injury I heard
Yeah that’s what an eyewitness said, if you watch the video you can clearly see that’s not the case though.
It actually looks like he was trying to help to me, he was just too far away and resorted to trying to be a large presence so that the driver would stop, assuming incorrectly that the driver would be unwilling to straight up murder people.
It looks like he saw the officer by the black car panicking and was going over to there when he got him. Didn’t seem like he even saw the woman and child. You can see the delivery guy look and walk over to the officer when he started waving his hands. Either way, it looks like he was trying to be helpful
> Didn’t seem like he even saw the woman and child.
Lol what are you talking about? They’re directly in his line of sight. We know this because he’s looking right at the car that hit him after driving thru the woman and child. Would be kind of hard not to notice.
He is very clearly watching the entire interaction go down.
Guy got hit by the car and pushed to the back of the truck. It's feasible he got injured, doesn't have to mean he broke something (in other words, doesn't have to be visible to the camera).
Edit: He hit the thing on the back of the truck, too, the one used to lower cargo
He walked out like he was about to be on some terminator mode and got fucked up for underestimating reality
Yes, just a wrist injury. Seriously, who the hell drives over a baby?
Heard they were ok, but mother got a ticket for J-walking……crazy
Gotta bleed someone dry for this madness.
I mean, there wasn't a cross walk, and had she not crossed where she did, she never would have been hit, so not too crazy to cite her.
Jaywalking isn't illegal here in Sweden, it's just one of those silly American things.
Mostly used as an exuse to harass undesirables as I understand it.
I would think that getting hit by a car and almost losing your child would be punishment enough. But I guess some people just love kicking people while they're down.
That you don't think it's crazy is crazy.
My dude have you been anywhere else in europe.
This happened in NYC so Swedish laws don't matter.
She looks like she’s got a lot of melanin, so she got a ticket.
She should get cited for child endangerment too
If she had started walking a foot to the left, the result would've been the same.
Plus, it's a made-up law.
All laws are made up
They pulled the baby for open bottle and illicit drugs. The baby was later shot for resisting arrest
Was perpetrator caught?
They did find the vehicle but it was abandoned
Surprised I missed this. I have citizen and a few other local nyc news apps, yet I did not get informed of this until just now on Reddit
There someone who went in more depth
I think there the top comment on the thread
So I recommend to go to them for more information
By the way the mother and child are find
The delivery guy has a slightly more severe leg injury
That is too bad they were find. I don't think they should of gotten a ticket after being ran over.
Honestly the typos don't even bother me nearly as much as the fact that they did separate paragraphs for each individual sentence.
It says a lot about society that they where lost in the first place, but I'm glad they are find now.
The amount of comments in this thread blaming the mother for not being in a crosswalk is insane.
Have people just been pre-programmed to find some type of fault with the victim to excuse criminal behavior these days?
Dude literally ran over a fucking baby, it doesn't matter what the Mom was doing.
Not to mention he was running from the cops, no crosswalk in the world was gonna stop this POS
In my city legally any intersection with a sidewalk attached at any of its points is considered a crosswalk regardless of whether it’s stated or not
It's also it's NY and not some major highway in the middle of no where. Jay walking or whatever VS several counts of aggravated assault, manslaughter yadda yadda.
A car struck three people, including a toddler in a stroller, in Queens as the driver attempted to flee from officers who had pulled the vehicle over, police said.
The vehicle was pulled over Wednesday afternoon near Wyckoff Avenue and George Street in Ridgewood, according to police. As the officers approached the car, the driver accelerated quickly, abruptly taking off from the scene.
While driving away, the car struck three people, including a mother pushing her 2-year-old child in a stroller, police said. Both the 28-year-old mother and child were taken to a nearby hospital with minor injuries.
A 35-year-old man was also hit by the car and was taken to Wyckoff Hospital after appearing to have suffered a serious leg injury. Witnesses said the man, who is not related to the other victims, was making deliveries when he was struck, and his partner was unaware of what was happening in the moment.
"He actually pushed the child out of the way...he's a hero, the guy who got hit," said witness Carlos Lopez, who took video of the incident. "He was very concerned about the child."
Surveillance video showed the chaotic scene, as officers tried to chase down the driver while it sped away.
The vehicle did not stop and sped away from the scene. The two officers did not pursue the vehicle immediately after it took off, choosing to attend to the victims instead.
The car was later recovered in Bushwick, but without the driver. No arrests have yet been made.
>He actually pushed the child out of the way...
Except the video clearly shows that not to be the case.
This is why eyewitness testimony is borderline useless as evidence.
Exactly he didn’t get near the mother and was struck right after the driver struck the mother and Kid. The kid was even under the car
I'm happy the kid was under the car at least
The safest place to end up in a situation like that
I'm happy the people are okay and hope the person get caught
Well... like, not the actual safest but I take your point.
I meant from where he got hit from
Under the car is probably the safest at that point
Especially since it's just a baby
I don't think the kid would have lived if they went over
And well under the wheel, is just splat
Full stops my friend :) but also kind of a poetic way to write
I slowed it down and looked. He watches the whole thing and it looks like he might possibly get hands on the kid while he is being hit. Not definite but very possible.
Yeah I rewatched it like 20 times trying to figure it out… and can’t tell for certain one way or another. He, for sure, isn’t near the mother at the time of impact, but he does seem to be close enough to where the kid falls that he *maybe* pushed it out of the way? Idk either way but I do wish there was another view point!
It seems like the delivery guy was aware of what was happening and tried to help. The lady was unaware of what was happening and jaywalked into the middle of the intersection.
Dafuq is wrong with people?
People staring down serious time won’t really hang around for tea and biscuits.
Bet that driver was either wanted or had stuff in the car he did not want the police to see.
Found the car abandoned and haven’t arrested anyone, sounds stolen to me
Lots… Florida and New York come up often, someone should check the water
Gotta give props to the cop for choosing to get medical on the way and render aid instead of chasing
I believe Queens NYPD doesn't chase anymore after an incident that led to the death of two individuals who were fleeing on a motorbike.
Most PDs that I hear about anymore have pulled back from chasing due to how many times the chase leads to a fatal accident, whether that is the feeling person or party, or random victims that happen to be where the chase to come to an end, which often is a crash. Usually it is only the state police or highway patrols that still chase, but it really is going to be different from jurisdiction to jurisdiction.
(Doesn't mean I don't think it was good that the cop instantly pulled up to show that there is police activity and alert any traffic coming through and helping with medical. Definitely did a good job.)
It's a lot more simple than that. The highest priority of the Police is to preserve life. At least it is here in the UK, if a certain state's Police Force didn't run with that as the highest priority then it'd lower my trust in them.
Cop in video made the right call. Perp may have intentionally done this knowing that the cop couldn't chase. That's what criminals do, they exploit policies and human behaviour.
Preserve life? Someone should let the cops in the US know that.
You’re literally watching a US cop do that
Nah it’s easier to go with screw the cops no matter what on Reddit
Ikr thanks for seeing this
isn’t that what we just witnessed?
1000 people were killed last year by police officers. Taking into account number of violent crime committed a year in the US that number is really low.
I think most people misinterpret that motto, “serve and protect.” They’re meant to serve and protect the people they are arresting as well. First the innocent bystanders, then the people causing problems. Their badge is a shield for a reason. It signifies that they have made themselves the shield. I’m not saying cops are never justified in using lethal force, but the idea that they are warriors the same way soldiers are is bass ackwards. There are a lot of cops that would rather help a bad guy than shoot them, even at the risk of being shot themselves. They wear bulletproof vests to help them be that way. We need to focus on that sort of thing. With cops, the best defense is not a good offense, because their goal is not or should not be to defeat, but to protect and serve.
Wtf are you on about lol
After he pulled securely and wholly into the crosswalk. Safety first all around.
Criminal is putting it very lightly: felon who deserves to rot under the jail and in hell is more fitting
The mother was just jaywalking, I think a ticket would be enough.
Lol god damn this made crack up
Unfortunately that will not happen . The justice system is a joke and it literally gives these people slap on the wrist . This guy will at most get a couple years , parole then an early release for good behavior and community service.
Looks like attempted murder…. Find them!!!!
They’ll enjoy prison, almost as much as child molesters
This is New York. Don’t get your hopes up.
It's NYC they'll be out without bail based on what's happening there .
He’s out on bail by the end of the year
Bro that kid went between the tires wow
Yeah thats a Lucky kiddo. He went under the car and between the tires. He has a Guardian Angel.... If the criminal did steer abit right/left, he would 100% run over the kid with his tires.
Yo if your trying to escape at least like wait, cmon have some humanity
They did it on purpose I think so that the officers would have to choose either chase them or help the victims. Pretty messed up.
Wtf wrong with people, that technically would make sense to get time but who does that, I didn’t even think of that as a cause until pointed out
People like that should be fucking shot.
What do you mean... You gotta cook em, beat em, and then shoot them
This sub just makes my blood boil, but I can't look away.
I hope that mf gets the full prison treatment.
I don’t trust Durango, Charger, Challenger and Altima owners.
This is like those trope movie scenes where a lady is pushing a baby in a stroller or something across the street and gets in the way of a car chase
The mom ate a face full of car & sprung right back up to check on the child, that is some motherly instinct and power right there
what kind of place is that to cross a road though lol, middle of the junction?
There is no labeled crosswalk, and if there was the black car would be blocking it. But most importantly this is NYC, where you just kinda cross wherever.
OMG...finally found a comment where someone else noticed the mother just strolled into the middle of a street. The car coming the other direction had to slow down to not hit them. I'm sure there was a safer place to cross nearby.
Wait I’m partially blind mostly stupid but I’d she just crossing the road it bout a cross walk?
No you're not blind or stupid, you are right, yep, she did jaywalk.... which is stupid!
So she jaywalked with a baby?
That’s a bit reckless
I know I know everyone is asking if the mom and kid are hurt. I’m mostly worries about that truck loader, the dude got smacked into the container at like 40 miles per hour, looks like his head got his, is he okay??
What kind of irresponsable mother jaywalks with their child regardless of what happened in This video
Pretty much anyone that lives in a densely populated city, such as NYC.
I mean Im not saying jaywalking is wrong. I do it all the time I live in Barcelona. But with a baby?!
it's NYC. if you don't jaywalk, then you must be a new person who moved there
If you have a 2 year old you take extra precautions. I drove without a seatbelt a lot before I had my daughter. Now we check our seat belts before the car even starts moving. She took the risk and her baby paid the price.
NY is such trash
He also ran over a police officer
Stay on the crosswalk ladies and gentlemen
And that’s why you keep your head on a swivel and cross at the crosswalk kid…
Is anyone aware of the complete chaos in NYC now? No cash bail required, even for dangerous, violent & repeat offenders?
Reminds me of a Simpsons episode with Sideshow Bob: Attempted murder. Now honestly what is that? Can you win a Nobel Prize for attempted chemistry?
It’s the same in many cities in the US
And they didn't go until the woman and baby was in their path.
This person driving and there utter disregard for life is disgusting
What's the story on this?
Looks like he hit someone with his car
I totally missed that!
Thanks for the insight lol
I couldn’t resist
Why the hell did the lady cross right in the middle of a T junction
That’s attempted murder x2. I don’t care what anyone says.
Everyone on here is just ignoring the dude in neon that also got hit
Side note and before I say it the driver is a POS but what a terrible place to cross the road for the mother. Just straight in the middle of a junction crossing to get on a crossing
New York District Attorney jails mother with stroller for hindering criminal’s escape.
This kind of stuff makes me appreciate crosswalks. I don’t like walking across wide stretches of street especially in a traffic prone or congested areas. And with a kid, dog or elderly person with me, I’d rely on the crosswalks a lot more.
She should’ve used the crosswalk…
Pisses me off.
I was more annoyed how the mother of the stroller was jaywalking with a stroller. smh
This person doesn’t like jaywalkers apparently.
The Baby was good to go though, got right up.
That kid was definitely about to yell AY I'M WALKIN' HERE
The baby was prolly finna chase down the car
That kid got right up! Strong work 💪
Why do people not understand, that no matter what you've done, you are making your life way harder when you hurt people in the process of trying to get away?
right in front of the police?! wtf
Am I this wrong thinking they made it so the cops would have to stop for calling an ambulance instead of chasing them ?
Cop sitting there before it happened?
Not only was she not crossing in an actual cross walk but this is why situational awareness is so important. You are a parent and you’re in NYC for Christs sake. Pay attention
DUDE THAT BABY TOOK THE HIT AND GOT UP LIKE NOTHING HAPPENED WTF
They did that on purpose so they could get away
Did the baby die from the incident
the child is so lucky to be caught in between the wheels, hopefully they caught him
Please tell me the mom and baby are OK
Those cops ran in slow motion
SMH, they found the car in my hometown, Bushwick Brooklyn
Crazy the amount of people that come out of the wood works
[ Removed by Reddit ]
Why didn’t she use the crosswalk?
Is the baby okay?
I think if there were more police this could have been avoided
Wtf, and was the woman jaywalking with a stroller ?!
She needs a ticket as well. She’s not crossing in the cross walk with her child. Hope they’re well !!
Wtf? Jesus christ!
I am super happy those cops decided the child's wellbeing was more important than an immediate arrest. I'm sure it will be figured out soon enough. We see so many mistakes from the police, this was the right thing this time.
She was jay walking.
What crimes have they already committed that multiple potential third degree murders looks like a good option?
The driver will only get a slap on the wrist anyway.
Those cops ran immediately to help the baby. Not a thought but instinct.. just remember that when you’re stuck up your own ass thinking cops are some evil monsters
An absolute miracle the child is okay. I'm not from America so I don't know how the road works, but that seems like the worst place to cross the road. The car coming from the other direction had to slow down for the mother. Was she jaywalking or do pedestrians have right of way?
And yet the cops are always the bad guys…
