A 22-year-old woman is in critical condition after she jumped from a dollar van as its driver tried to flee from police in Jamaica Sunday afternoon, authorities said.
Cops attempted to pull over the Ford Econoline van about 4:40 p.m. on Archer Avenue, near 165th Street, according to police. As it sped away, its passenger jumped from the vehicle on Union Hall Street, near 107th Avenue.
The escape left the woman injured and she was taken to Jamaica Hospital, where she is listed in critical condition.
The van’s driver, Jameson Golding, 22, of Brooklyn, kept going, but soon tried to flee on foot and was caught by police, according to published reports.
Golding was arrested on a slew of charges, including resisting arrest, reckless driving, reckless endangerment, unlicensed operator and obstructing governmental administration, police said.
