North Corona, Queens, NY (June 25, 2020) – An allegedly intoxicated driver was taken into custody after striking and seriously injuring a woman who was delivering goods to COVID-19 patients in Queens. The incident happened on Northern Boulevard in the North Corona neighborhood at around 4:00 p.m. on Wednesday afternoon, June 24th.
Officials said that 35-year-old Nancy Tituana was unloading food from the rear of an SUV when she was hit by a speeding vehicle. The driver of the vehicle was attempted to flee the scene but nearby good Samaritans held him at the scene until authorities arrived.
Tituana was rushed to Elmhurst Hospital where she has been reported in serious but stable condition. Doctors said that they are not sure if she will ever walk again.
The driver, identified as Luis Encalada, 35, was arrested on charges of DWI, vehicular assault, and driving without a license.
Our thoughts are with Nancy Tituana and her family at this time. We hope for her full recovery.
