Sid Wolfe, 43, a former advisor to New York’s bombing governor, Andrew Cuomo, died in a tragic accident on the US highway on Sunday.
Wolf and five of his friends are said to have ordered a taxi from Lyft in Delaware on the US East Coast on Sunday night.
According to the police, a quarrel must have arisen between the driver and passengers on the highway. The driver then allegedly stopped in the middle of the left lane of the motorway and ordered all passengers to get off the vehicle.
Suddenly he came from behind
At that moment, it was said that another car came from behind. The vehicle coming from behind had to quickly swerve into the right lane to avoid hitting the taxi that had stopped.
According to one Police statement Should the man who came from behind not see the passenger who had just been ejected from the passenger seat on the right and was now standing on the road.
The left side of the front of this car hit pedestrians. The accident car stopped immediately, while the taxi driver was said to have fled the scene immediately.
The other five passengers survived the accident unharmed.
The taxi driver has not been arrested or identified.
Shock and sadness
Sidney Wolfe previously worked as a senior advisor to Governor Andrew Cuomo in New York.
Shocked and saddened to hear this tragic news. “Sid was a wonderful employee who worked tirelessly to improve the lives of all New Yorkers,” Cuomo wrote on Twitter.
Wolf is survived by his wife and two young daughters.
– This is a very difficult situation for the family. The amount of shock and pain we are feeling now is inexplicable. We really appreciate all the messages of support, says the family in a statement to the local TV station Fox 5.
