Man Dragged From Queens to Coney by Minivan

A guy got hit by a Chevy minivan in Corona this morning, and was dragged all the way to Coney Island before being discovered -- a 17-mile trip, reports the Times' City Blog. "The pedestrian, apparently a male," they add, "is dead." The driver, who like the victim is at this writing unidentified, notified police, who are trying to find out what happened.

"The driver of the cargo van said he noticed cars swerving," adds AP, "but didn't see the initial accident and assumed the drivers were avoiding a pothole." Photo (cc) gmeurope.
