A 21-year-old Laurelton man has been charged with second-degree murder after driving his car into a group of pedestrians following an altercation at a Merrick Boulevard banquet hall on Nov. 8.
The NYPD and Queens District Attorney Richard Brown said Kevin Weekes allegedly rammed his car into a group of people standing outside the Visions of New York banquet facility just after 8 p.m., killing Kevin Lewis, 20, also of Laurelton.
She was killed a little over a year ago, but for the parents of 3-year-old Allison Liao, the agony continues.
Hsi-Pei Liao and his wife, Amy, recently discovered that the driver of the car who mowed down their daughter had his two summonses for $150 each voided by the Department of Motor Vehicles.
It’s not every mother who could find the fortitude to send her child out into the world all alone — 6,000 miles away, no less — in search of a better life. But Pari Golyan knew what was best for her family and today it is clear that the risk paid off.
And she didn’t do it just once or twice. One by one, she sent her three eldest sons from their native Tehran, Iran to New York City to further their educations and improve their chances for success.

Gov. Cuomo on Sunday announced a new set of policies for quarantining travelers coming into John F. Kennedy International Airport who may have had direct contact with Ebola patients in West Africa, two days after his original policy reportedly came under fire from healthcare groups and senior White House officials.

Just weeks after the City Council passed the Justice for Hit-and-Run Victims Act, sponsored by Councilman Jimmy Van Bramer (D-Sunnyside), a young man was critically injured by a driver who fled the scene in Woodside and the community is looking for justice.
“The days of Queens Boulevard being the ‘Boulevard of Death’ will no longer be tolerated,” Van Bramer said in a written statement. “Together with the NYPD and the community, we are sending a message directly to the driver who left a man clinging to his life, as well as all reckless drivers in the City of New York. We will track you down and punish you to the fullest extent of the law for your actions.”
