A Brooklyn teen standing on a street divider was struck and killed by an alleged drunk driver last night. Terence Tsao, 17, was standing on a Cropsey Ave. traffic island at Bay 37th St. in Gravesend when a 2000 Dodge minivan jumped the curb and hit him around 9:40 p.m. Tsao was taken to Lutheran Medical Center, where he died.
Driver Vitali Korzavin, 46, smashed the van into a light pole after hitting Tsao. He was arrested at the scene, and was later charged with vehicular manslaughter and DWI, police said.
In a separate incident last night, a 12-year-old boy was killed after a hit-and-run in Ocean County around 10:30 p.m. Police don't have a description of the vehicle, and haven't released the name of the victim yet.
