Police are looking for the driver of a dark sedan that struck a 65-year-old man at a Queens intersection early Friday and fled the scene, leaving the victim to die in the street.
The victim's daughter, Melissa Martin, said her father was returning home after a walk, which the doctor recommend he do for heart health, when he was struck and killed. Martin said her father was retired and described him as a happy man who "loved to party, loved to be happy, loved to have fun" and was adored by nearly everyone he met.
"I want this person found," Martin said of the hit-and-run driver. "I want the full fource of the law to get him. He's taken away my father. He's taken away the grandfather of my kids."
"He had a lot more life to give," she said of her father.
The investigation is ongoing.
