A drunk driver struck and killed a pedestrian in East Harlem, cops said Wednesday.

The fatal crash happened just after 5 p.m. Tuesday when 23-year-old Farkell Hopkins slammed his Safelite auto windshield repair truck into the man, who was crossing E. 125th Street near Madison Avenue mid-block, according to police.

The victim, whose name was not immediately released, died at the scene.

Hopkins stayed at the scene and was arrested, police said.

The Queens man faces charges of vehicular manslaughter and driving while intoxicated, according to cops.

Man accused of driving drunk, killing pedestrian freed due to new criminal justice reforms

A man who allegedly hit and killed a pedestrian while driving drunk in East Harlem is back on the streets for now — thanks to the state’s new criminal justice reforms, authorities said Thursday.

Farkell Hopkins, 23, was arrested on charges of vehicular manslaughter and DWI at the scene of the deadly New Year’s Eve collision, but was cut loose before he was even arraigned.

The Manhattan District Attorney’s office said prosecutors still intend to pursue the case, but they now have to ensure they’re able to turn over all their evidence to Hopkins’ defense team within a tight 15-day time-frame, thanks to new soft-on-crime laws that went into effect Jan. 1.

“This driver will be prosecuted,” said Danny Frost, spokesman for Manhattan DA Cy Vance.

“Under the new mandates, prosecutors must obtain and provide charged persons with a variety of materials within 15 days of arraignment,” he continued. “Accordingly, in a number of cases, prosecutors will defer charges until they are confident that discovery obligations can be fulfilled within fifteen days of arraignment on those charges.”

But even when Hopkins is arraigned, he will likely be freed into the community once again if the charges don’t change — as vehicular manslaughter is among the more than 400 offenses that are no longer bail-eligible under the sweeping criminal justice reforms, sources told The Post.

Behind the wheel of a Safelite AutoGlass truck, Hopkins allegedly plowed into a man jaywalking across East 125th Street near Madison Avenue around 5:10 p.m. Tuesday, according to police.

The violent impact sent the victim flying several feet down the East Harlem street, surveillance video obtained by The Post shows.

The victim, who was pronounced dead on the scene, had not been identified by investigators as of late Thursday because he was not carrying any ID at the time, police sources said.

Hopkins stayed at the scene and was administered a breathalyzer test by cops, which allegedly revealed a sky-high .16 blood-alcohol content — twice the legal limit of .08, according to sources.

Word of Hopkins’ release incensed NYPD insiders.

“They’re f–king letting everybody go,” fumed one source. “They’re letting everyone go home.”

But defense attorneys defended the new laws.

“Whenever there’s a major criminal-justice policy [reform] everyone has to recalibrate,” said Michael Discioarro, a former Bronx DA turned criminal-defense attorney.

“When Miranda v. Arizona came out, everybody predicted Armageddon,” added Discioarro, referring to the landmark 1966 ruling that required police to issue so-called Miranda warnings to suspects. “Now look what happened, police adjusted.”

Hopkins could not be reached for comment Thursday, and provided cops with an address in Queens that is actually an office for Safelite, an Ohio-based company specializing in the repair and insurance of windshields and other auto glass.

“We are deeply saddened to hear the news of this accident and our thoughts go out to the families involved,” said Safelite spokeswoman Keri Lucas.

Lucas noted that Safelite is “fully cooperating with the police,” but declined to say whether the allegedly hammered Hopkins was on the clock for the company at the time.

Video shows alleged drunk driver fleeing from Ferndale police, then crashing into tree

Updated: 2:27 AM, Jan 17, 2020



FERNDALE, Mich. (WXYZ) — A man was arrested by Ferndale police after he fled during a traffic stop, initiating a police pursuit.

On Jan. 7, police say Brently Bohanen was stopped just after 1 a.m. in the area of Eight Mile Road, just west of Woodward Avenue after police say he was speeding.

During the stop, Bohanen handed over his license. Police then asked to do a search and run him through a few tests to determine if he was capable of driving. Bohanen is seen on video closing his window as police ask him not to.

Officers ask him to leave the window down and open the door to step out of the car. Bohanen continues to close the window, then eventually starts his car and drives away.

There was a short pursuit before Bohanen crashed into a tree outside a home in the area of LeRoy and Pinecrest. He then fled on foot and was later captured by police.

Bohanen is charged with operating while intoxicated, fleeing police and driving on a suspended license.

Man accused of killing pedestrian while driving drunk released without bail

A man who allegedly struck and killed a pedestrian while driving drunk in East Harlem on New Year’s Eve was released without bail at his Tuesday arraignment — as prosecutors revealed he tried to ditch several bottles of booze before cops arrived.

Farkell Hopkins, 23, is accused of chucking a cardboard box full of empty and filled liquor bottles near the scene of the fatal crash on East 125th Street near Madison Avenue that left an unidentified man in his 40s dead.

There had been a three-week gap between Hopkins’s arrest and his arraignment thanks to the state’s new criminal justice reforms that require prosecutors to turn over evidence to defense teams within a 15-day time-frame.

Those same reforms enabled Hopkins to remain out of jail, despite facing a number of charges, including vehicular manslaughter, criminally negligent homicide and tampering with physical evidence.

Hopkins pleaded not guilty to all charges.

He was allegedly speeding when he plowed into the victim, who was jaywalking near the East Harlem intersection, prosecutors said. The victim was sent flying 100 feet down the street from the impact and pronounced dead on scene.

“The defendant was driving a work vehicle, he purchased the liquor that he drank on work hours, and he killed this victim on work hours while he was driving this vehicle,” Assistant District Attorney Courtney Razner said in court Tuesday.

Police also discovered more liquor bottles inside Hopkins’ Safelite AutoGlass work truck.

His defense attorney, Dave Krauss, said after his arraignment, “He is presumed innocent and we have faith in the judicial process.”

Police: Driver charged with vehicular homicide says he smoked weed after being upset about Kobe Bryant’s death




Updated January 27 at 9:53 AM

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - An arrest has been made after two people were killed during a crash Sunday night.

Officers responded to the fatal crash at the intersection of South Third Street and Raines Road.

MPD said Charles Jones, 38, was driving northbound on South Third Street when he drove into the center lane into opposing traffic to make a left-hand turn. Police said he disregarded the red light then crashed into the victim’s vehicle.

The victims were taken to Regional One in critical condition but did not survive their injuries.

Jones told police he smoked weed before the crash because he was upset about Kobe Bryant’s death.

Police watched security camera footage that showed Jones crossing over the middle lanes at a high rate of speed.

Investigators have identified the two killed as Sonja Roser, 54, and Christopher Hunt, 51.

Homeless woman goes on carjacking spree before crashing near City Hall
By Ruth Weissmann
February 1, 2020 | 10:24am

It’s The Fast & The Furious: FDR.

A joyriding homeless woman was busted following a wild carjacking spree across Manhattan in which she stole three different cars — flipping one on the FDR highway — and plowed into at least 18 other vehicles before crashing near City Hall, police said Saturday.

Aludein Marks, 25, kicked off the Grant Theft Auto-like stunt at about 7:15 p.m. Friday near the intersection of 5th Avenue and 74th Street, where she ordered a stunned motorist out of a gray Mercedes Benz sedan and took the wheel, authorities said.

She then drove south toward the FDR, striking an occupied car near East 68th Street and York Avenue and another near East 62nd Street and 2nd Avenue without slowing down.

Marks then ditched her first ride and commandeered a black Mercedes Benz G-class SUV, ordering its frightened driver out of the car.

The maniac motorist slammed into a Toyota Corolla near 34th Street, flipping the $130,900 Benz in the process, police said.

Undeterred, Marks jumped out and jacked a third set of wheels, a silver Toyota Camry, and took off, plowing into at least 15 other cars as she sped downtown.

She finally crashed that car into a barrier across from City Hall, where cops caught up to her and placed her under arrest.

Marks—who has a long rap sheet of at least four felonies and 13 misdemeanors, sources said—was hit was a slew of charges, including three counts of robbery, four counts of grand larceny auto, driving while intoxicated, and operating a vehicle while drug-impaired.

She has been homeless since her last stint at the Vernon C. Bain Correctional Center in the Bronx, according to authorities.

Marks was taken to New York Presbyterian-Lower Manhattan Hospital for observation. No one was seriously hurt in the wild spree.

Driver facing felony murder charge after his 4th DWI leads to fatal crash, deputies say
Jeffery Davis, 57, is facing a minimum of five years in prison for the crash.

Updated: 6:56 AM CST February 3, 2020





HARRIS COUNTY, Texas — A man will be charged with felony murder after a deadly crash in northwest Houston on Sunday evening, deputies said.

The crash happened before 8 p.m. on Bammel N. Houston at Champion Forest.

Deputies believe the driver of a gray pickup was taking a left turn when he struck the driver of a black pickup truck head-on. The driver in the black pickup was killed.

The man in the gray pickup appeared to be heavily intoxicated, deputies said. He was taken to the hospital for his injuries in the wreck.

Authorities later identified the suspect as Jeffery Davis, 57.

Records show this would be his fourth DWI arrest, and he'll face a felony murder charge for Sunday's crash.

Sean Teare, chief of the Vehicular Crimes Division in Harris County, said the district attorney's office would be looking to find where the suspect bought alcohol or where he was possibly overserved.

"What we have here is somebody who has been convicted three times before of DWI – continues to do it," said Teare. "And this always the final outcome. When people continue to do this, we have these tragedies. At the end of the day, this person is facing a minimum of five [years] to maximum of life in prison."

The victim's identity has not yet been released.

Records show that on top of his DWI convictions in 1995, 1997 and 2014, the suspect has also previously been arrested for other criminal charges, including assault on a family member.

Homeless carjacker who went on crime spree held on $100K bail
By Reuven Fenton and Craig McCarthy
February 2, 2020 | 6:31pm

The homeless carjacker who went on a crime spree, speeding through Manhattan in high-end cars was ordered held on $100,000 bail by a judge on Sunday.

Aludein Marks “went on what can only be described as a crime spree … starting on Fifth Avenue in the 70s and ending at City Hall,” Manhattan Assistant District Attorney Ana Sophia Radolinski said during her arraignment.

“She stole four different vehicles … pushing one driver out of a car and dragging him for a few seconds,” Radolinski said. “She caused mayhem on the FDR, hitting multiple cars in the median before flipping her own car.”

The 25-year-old, wearing yellow pants and a green camo hoodie, appeared in Manhattan Criminal Court Sunday afternoon before Judge Thomas Farber, who set bail.

Marks, who allegedly admitted to being drunk and high on cocaine on Friday evening, stole four cars — including three Mercedes-Benzes — and smashed into nearly 20 vehicles, according to authorities.

The 30-minute spree, authorities say, started at Fifth Avenue and E. 74th Street where she jumped in the passenger seat of a Mercedes-Benz, forced the driver out and barreled down the road toward the FDR.

After she smashed her first Benz, she hopped in a black G-class SUV and headed down the FDR service road before smashing another high-end whip near E. 34th Street, police said.

Marks then boosted her third Benz and drove the luxury vehicle down to E. 26th Street — where cops said she jacked her fourth ride, a silver Toyota Camry.

The joyride came to an end around 7:45 p.m. near City Hall where she crashed into a barrier, according to police.

She was arrested and charged with three counts of robbery, four counts of grand larceny auto, driving while intoxicated and operating a vehicle while drug-impaired.
