At 3 a.m. on Nov. 1, police responded to a 911 call motor vehicle collision at Havemayer Street and South Fifth Street in Williamsburg. Upon their arrival, they found 29-year-old Jean Caliste, of Jamaica, unconscious and unresponsive with trauma about the head and body in a 2017 Ford Focus. Police also found a 26-year-old female in the vehicle with minor injuries.
