Juan Franjul turned himself in for Saturday's sad hit-and-run death of 12 year old Jacob Colon. Franjul had gotten into an accident where he tried to get the other driver to accept money instead of reporting it to the police; when the driver refused, Franjul drove off, ran a red light and hit Colon in the Richmond Hill section of Queens. Franjul is a mechanic who had been returning the car to the owner.
Colon's mother Diana told the Daily News, "He'll never truly pay for the death of my son, but I hope he'll get what he deserves. If it were up to me, I'd give him the death penalty. He left him there like a dog."
