A traffic accident in Brooklyn, New York last week took the life of a young worker and forever changed that of the driver who killed him.
News sources reported that 14-year-old Edwin Ajacalon, who was making restaurant deliveries on his bicycle, was struck by a car and killed on Saturday evening. Police say Ajacalon, a Guatemalan immigrant, was riding east on 23rd Street when a BMW sedan hit him at the intersection of Fifth Avenue. The teen was pronounced dead after being transported to a hospital.
A witness told news outlets that the driver of the car was “hysterical” after the accident. He was taken to a hospital for evaluation.
Police investigating the accident say preliminary indications are that there was no criminal behavior involved.
