Corrections Officer with Suspended License Runs Down, Kills Woman in Brooklyn
It's not a cop this time, but a state corrections officer who has reportedly mowed down a woman with his car in Brooklyn this morning. The as yet unnamed 38-year-old victim was struck at St. Marks and Flatbush Avenues and pronounced dead at Methodist Hospital. Sing Sing employee Damon Padmore, aka KokoHead (which name appears on his license plate), also 38, was on his way to work at the time of the incident. He is charged with driving with a suspended license.
