Woman dragged to death in Long Island hit-and-run, delivery driver arrested

A Long Island AutoZone delivery driver was arrested Monday for a hit-and-run that left a 38-year-old woman dead, police said.

Donnell Hicks, 26, of Queens, was driving a 2017 Dodge Ram work van when he struck two pedestrians — Ann Marie Christina and Eric Krems — and kept going as he pulled out of a North Babylon AutoZone on Deer Park Avenue just after 1 p.m., according to Suffolk County police.

Christina, 38, got caught underneath the van and dragged about a half-mile before rolling to the side of the road when Hicks turned right onto Shade Street, police said.

She died at a nearby hospital. Krems, 40, was treated and released with non-life threatening injuries.

Hicks continued on his route and later returned to work — where he was tracked down by cops about 2 p.m. and charged with leaving the scene of an accident resulting in death.

He’s expected to be arraigned Tuesday at Central Islip’s First District Court.
