A 21-year-old man in New Jersey was crushed and killed by an empty Lexus vehicle that rolled into him after its owner started it via remote control.
Victim Michael Kosanovich was standing in between two parked cars, both 2002 Lexus IS300s, on 148th Street near Foch Boulevard in Queens on Friday at 10pm, when one of the cars was started via its remote and suddenly rolled forward.
When the Lexus moved, Kosanovich got pinned between the car and the other Lexus directly in front of it.
Bystanders raced to push the car back, but it lurched forward a second time, causing severe trauma to Kosanovich's legs and torso, NYPD say.
Kosanovich was rushed to Jamaica Medical Center where he died the next day.
