NEW YORK (PIX11)—It's been deadly on the roads, this Mother's Day weekend.
Police are on the hunt for the driver who mowed down a 47-year-old man in Ozone Park and just kept going as if nothing had happened.
Rohan Singh was killed a little after 3 a.m. Sunday morning at the intersection of Liberty Avenue and 108th Street.
Friends told investigators he'd just left the Two Way Deli on 108th where he picked up some beer, when the driver plowed into him with a Black Nissan Maxima going approximately 70 miles per hour. Singh was rushed to Jamaica Hospital but died before he got there.
Meanwhile, people in the neighborhood are very upset and very angry about what happened to Singh, his friends describing him as a "good man," who minded his own business, and who everybody liked. They want the driver caught and punished -- yesterday.

Elsewhere, another man is dead after a Ferrari hit his motorcycle Sunday morning in the MetLife Stadium parking lot in East Rutherford, N.J. The car was totaled. New Jersey State Police want to know what the two Ferrari drivers were doing, and how fast they may've been going, when the cherry Ferrari crossed the center line near Parking Lot J, hitting the motorcycle head on.
The Ferrari driver walked away with just a hand injury.
Proof of the violent crash can be seen in the condition of the car -- small and large chunks of metal scattered all over the highway and parking lot. A piece of the front end is gone, the windshield is in pieces and the hood twisted.
The sports car drivers are employed by Gotham Dream Cars, which rents expensive cars. A company representative says they took the cars out to fill up the gas tanks, before an event at the Meadowlands Sunday. Investigators want to know if the drivers may've been racing each other, and exactly how the accident happened.
Meanwhile, cops arrested an Inwood man after, they say, barreled into the store behind a gas station. The attendant was hurt, when he was pinned between the car and store counter. He was taken to a nearby hospital, but there's no word on his condition.
According to investigators, Jorge Alvarenga, 37, was on Burnside Avenue when he ran off the roadway, striking the barriers that protect the gas pumps at a Mobile Station, crashing into the store behind the station. His 51-year-old passenger sustained non-life threatening injuries.
Alvarenga has been slapped with a laundry list of charges: assault, reckless endangerment, aggravated driving while intoxicated, driving while intoxicated, aggravated unlicensed operation, having suspended registration plates, operating an uninsured motor vehicle and operating an unregistered motor vehicle.
