An elderly Staten Island, NY couple was delivering food for a Thanksgiving food drive when they were struck by a passing car. Reports say that Peter and Lillian Sabados were delivering canned food to Our Lady Queen of Peace Catholic Church; located at 63 Cloister Place Staten Island, NY 10306 when the accident occurred. They were struck by a passing van while they were crossing the street. The van took off after the car accident. Both Peter and Lillian were rushed to the Staten Island University Hospital. Peter Sabados suffered a fatal injury at the time of the accident and his wife’s injury became fatal a short time after being admitted to the hospital. Police were able to locate the abandoned van a short while later and were able to track down the person responsible for the accident; a 26 year old man. Lekperic eventually turned himself in and will be facing charges of driving with a suspended license and leaving the scene of an accident. He has been held on $25,000.00 bail in Richmond County Criminal Court. There was no DWI involved and no charges for that filed.
