Police are looking for a suspect who they say ran over and dragged a man several feet in this pickup truck following a dispute in Ozone Park on July 30.


A roadway dispute between two men in Ozone Park turned violent when one of the men ran the other over and dragged him several feet before fleeing, police said.

The incident started just after midnight Wednesday as the 29-year-old victim was exiting his parked car on 99th Street and prevented a pickup truck from passing, cops said.

After the pickup truck’s driver and the victim started arguing, the driver accelerated slightly, bumping the victim, according to authorities. The driver accelerated again, running the victim over and dragging him several feet before fleeing the scene on 101st Avenue.

The victim was taken to Jamaica Hospital with abdominal and back injuries, and several abrasions.

Police have released a photo of the suspect’s vehicle, a light colored 2007-2009 GMC 1500 Series Sierra pickup truck.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS (8477). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website or can text their tips to CRIMES (274637), then enter TIP577. All calls are strictly confidential.
