Man sleeping under car outside NYC cemetery fatally run over

A person sleeping beneath a parked pick-up truck outdoors a Queens cemetery was killed when the car’s proprietor returned – and unknowingly ran over him, cops stated.

The unidentified sufferer, described as being in his 30s, was snoozing beneath the unoccupied Ford F350 at Maurice Avenue and 53rd Drive – simply outdoors Mount Zion Cemetery in Maspeth — earlier than 7 p.m. Tuesday when the motorist returned, police stated.



The driving force, a 42-year-old man, began pulling his truck out to drive south on Maurice Avenue when he felt a big bump, authorities stated.

When he stepped out of the truck, he realized he had run over the sufferer, cops stated.

EMS responded and rushed the person discovered beneath the truck to the Elmhurst Hospital Middle, the place he was pronounced useless a couple of half-hour after the accident.

The driving force stayed on the scene, cops stated.
