Couple Killed in SI Hit-and-Run by Man with 17 Suspensions
The alleged driver of the Mercedes, Theodore Ricks, and his passenger, William Knight, residents of Richmond Terrace Houses, were arrested at the scene, Ricks for leaving the scene of an accident (he tried to run; his license has been suspended 17 times) and Knight for possession of marijuana. An ADA tells Newsday that Knight told cops the victims "should have been wearing seatbelts." Elnahal and Ibrahim leave twin 13-year-old sons, who "held wooden shards of their parents' coffins as a remembrance." The bodies of Elnahal and Ibrahim are en route to their native Egypt for burial.
