UBER DRIVER FATALITY AFTER WEST SIDE HIGHWAY ALTERCATION | A 68-year-old Uber driver was killed in a single-vehicle collision on Sat., Nov. 11. Police responded to a 911 call just before midnight, of a vehicle collision at West St. and Horatio St. Before the accident, 68-year-old Richard Tolk, of West New York, NJ, was driving his 2010 Toyota Camry south on 11th Ave. Kohji Kosugi, 39, tapped the hood of the car with his hockey stick after a close call in the crosswalk at W. 20th St. Tolk, a grandfather of three, got out of his car to confront Kosugi. Kosugi then used the hockey stick to hit him on the head and — once Tolk fell — continued the assault. Kosugi fled on foot after the incident. Tolk got back in his car and drove south ultimately crashing into a cement barrier. Once police came, Tolk was rushed to Lenox Hill Hospital, where he was pronounced dead shortly after 12:30 a.m.. Kosugi has since been taken into custody, with bail set at $500,000.

LOST PROPERTY: Ring quest her only hope for reunion | She wasn’t bumped or jostled, and it doesn’t seem like it’s a crime, but a woman lost her very expensive ring.
