Rally calls for safer streets following car crash death of 10-year-oldPosted: Updated:
Activists, loved ones and elected officials came together Thursday evening to rally for safer streets after Enzo Farachio, 10, was hit and killed by a car earlier this week.
Farachio's parents said they joining the movement to crack down on traffic deaths. Activists and elected officials are vowing to turn the family's pain into purpose.
Those in attendance said they support City Council Speaker Corey Johnson's transportation "Master Plan" bill that would redesign streets to prioritize pedestrians and cyclists over drivers.
Police say an SUV slammed into Farachio at a bus stop and later crashed into scaffolding, nearly missing a woman and a child walking on the sidewalk. The collision happened on Ocean Avenue and Avenue L.
A GoFundMe has been set up to support the family. A small vigil has also been put up at the spot of the incident.
