Boy, 3, fatally struck by car in Queens


A 3-year-old boy was fatally struck by a car just steps away from his Queens home Monday, police said.

Mardichai Yovits was with his mother when he stepped out from between two parked cars on Virginia St. near Caffrey Ave. in Far Rockaway and was struck by a car driven by a 73-year-old woman about 11 a.m., officials said.

Medics rushed Mardichai to Long Island Jewish Medical Center but he could not be saved.

The driver, who stayed on the scene, faced no immediate charges.
