Kings Park Man Killed in Hit and Run Crash

21-year-old Kieran Smith was struck and killed after his vehicle became disabled.

A 21-year-old male from Kings Park was killed in a hit and run crash early Sunday morning.

According to police, Kieran Smith was driving a 2008 Nissan on the Long Island Expressway when his vehicle became disabled. Smith left his vehicle and was walking on Express Drive South when he was apparently struck and killed by a car, whose driver fled the scene.

A passing motorist discovered Smith’s body on the shoulder and called police at 7:45 a.m. Sunday, police said.

Smith's vehicle was impounded by police who said the investigation is continuing.

Detectives ask anyone with information on this incident or who may have witnessed the crash to contact the Third Squad at (631) 854-8352 or call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-220-TIPS. Police said all calls will remain confidential.

i was a kid about 30 or so years ago and the cars are way safer now but the people have compensated for this by becoming more dangerous. ( When I was 17 speeding was about 65-70 mph on the highway.) Now if I'm going that slow in the left lane I will usually have a "soccer mom" on my tail 2 kids strapped in car seats while she conducts her cell phone business of changing the world and looking important give me the high beams to get out of their way

I have a simple solution to that problem, I use it every single time. They give me high beams, I give them brake lights...

Yeah I actually thought about that but remember if its a female all they have to do is call the cops and you'll get pulled over and "admonished" by the police. (turning a wrong into a right thats how they do it in the city and we all how nice the boroughs have become) I always liked the word admonished
