A 2-year-old girl was fatally struck by her family’s SUV after she wandered in front of the vehicle in Bayside Sunday night.

The toddler, Leilani Rosales, was standing next to her mother – who was unloading packages from the rear of the SUV outside their house at 38-12 216th St. – when she walked to the front of the vehicle just after 10 p.m., according to police.

The driver of the SUV, who is the mother’s boyfriend, then struck the toddler as he began to pull away from the house in his 2021 Nissan Rogue, police said.

The couple, both aged 23, drove the child to Flushing Hospital but she could not be saved, police said. The girl had severe head trauma.

There are no arrests and police are treating the death as an accident. An investigation is being carried out by the NYPD’s Collision Investigation.

Op-ed: Congestion pricing would do much more harm than good for New Yorkers

Jun. 11, 2024 By Assemblymember David I. Weprin

Like many residents throughout the five boroughs and across the New York Metro Area, I was pleasantly surprised by Governor Kathy Hochul’s decision to “indefinitely pause” the implementation of Congestion Pricing. Rather than seeing this as a cynical calculation, as some have alleged, I see the Governor’s decision as a deeply pragmatic response to the crescendo of public concerns that I and many others have raised for years. As the countdown to the June 30 implementation date neared, everyday New Yorkers did what we do best: we spoke up for ourselves and said we won’t accept a bad deal! I applaud Governor Hochul for having the courage not just to listen to us but to take a tough stand against this misguided policy.
