The award for best scumbag of the year goes to this man who left his burning girlfriend in the car after having an accident. The galling incident happened on the Gowanus Expressway early Friday which left the surrounding eye-witnesses in shock when the bravado of the survivor guy was limited to escaping the scene. The guy didn’t care for his girlfriend and fled the scene in a taxi to reach the hospital at earliest.
According to the Police, the driver of the vehicle left it burning with a girl stuck inside. Saeed Ahmad, 23-year-old, took a cab to the Maimonides Hospital for sake of his life. He left behind his burning 2007 Infiniti G35 sedan along with the victim. The body of the victim Harleen Grewel, 25-year-old, was recovered burnt inside the car after a team of firefighters reached the calamitous crash scene. She was from Astoria, Queen and was found dead after the accident left the car burning in flames.
The guy was found in the hospital getting treatment for his burns. The police arrested the guy and charged him with criminally negligent homicide, driving without the licence and overspeeding the car. Cops report that Ahmad of Mill Basin lost control of the car as he was speeding towards westbound near Centre Street in Red Hook. The police further added that Ahmad and the victim were likely dating each other.
The video clearly shows Ahmad escaping the crash site after stopping a cab for the hospital. A lot of people are criticizing Ahmad for his failure of an attempt to save the girl stuck inside the burning car. Now, it can only be decided if Ahmad was at fault after the Police investigation is completed. Without getting every minute details we can’t give a verdict.
