Yesterday, it was reported that the SUV driver who plowed into five teenagers on a Queens sidewalk on Thursday morning had not been charged with any crime nor issued any summonses. Police initially determined that there was "no criminality suspected" in the incident involving driver Francis-Aung Lu. But the case is still being investigated by CIS, and the Daily News now hints that Lu may be charged after all.
Unfortunately, the News had no other details about what those charges might be, or what changed since their previous report. NYPD couldn't offer any other details about the investigation other than to say it is in the hands of CIS.
One of the victims, 13-year-old Angie Pena, remains in critical condition with several broken bones at Columbia-Presbyterian Hospital in Manhattan. “The father is going crazy — all he does is cry, cry, cry,” family friend Rosa Sarmiento told the Post. Angie's two friends who had been walking with her, 14-year-old Marina Abadir and 13-year-old Ashley Khan, are both listed in stable condition at Elmhurst Hospital Center with fractures and other injuries.
