Motorcyclist Faces Manslaughter Charges in Queens Hit-and-Run Fatality

Car accident in Queens

In Queens, New York, a fatal crash on the Rockaway Beach boardwalk has led to manslaughter charges against a dirt bike rider who allegedly left the scene of the accident that killed his passenger. The collision occurred near Beach 47th Street on August 29, 2022, at approximately 3 p.m.

The accused, Raytawon Wright, was operating his Qipai Hunier dirt bike when he reportedly lost control and struck a bench. His 26-year-old passenger, David Molina, was ejected from the bike and suffered a fatal head injury. Additionally, a 55-year-old individual rollerblading nearby was hit by the bike and sustained minor head injuries, for which they were hospitalized.

Following the crash, authorities report that Wright fled the scene, abandoning his vehicle and leaving Molina deceased on the boardwalk. A resident of Brooklyn with no previous arrests, 26-year-old Wright was eventually arrested on a warrant.

Wright appeared before Queens Criminal Court, charged with manslaughter, assault, leaving the scene of an accident, filing a false report, reckless driving, and driving without a license. He has entered a plea of not guilty and is being held on $25,000 bail.
