Statement on the Indictment of Vincent Ventafredda

"I want to thank District Attorney Dan Donovan and the NYPD Accident Investigation Squad for their work, which today resulted in the indictment of Vincent Ventafredda," said DOT Commissioner Iris Weinshall. "This indictment sends a powerful message to anyone who recklessly disregards the safety of others and flees the scene of an accident: You will get caught and you will go to jail. Our thoughts remain with the Antico family during this difficult time."
