A drunk driver of a BMW fatally struck a man in Washington Heights early Saturday, hours after a hit-and-run driver of another BMW critically injured a woman in Brooklyn, officials said.


Driver Jonathan Segura, 34, of the Bronx, was exiting the George Washington Bridge when he struck a man and woman, both 46-years-old, on West 181st Street near Amsterdam Avenue, police said. He lost control his his car and struck another car and sped off.


Both victims were rushed to Lincoln Hospital in the Bronx. The man, who was not immediately identified, could not be saved, but the woman is expected to survive.


Segura returned to the scene shortly after and surrendered to the police. He was charged with vehicular manslaughter, criminally negligent homicide, leaving the scene of an accident and drunk driving.

A few hours earlier, another BMW struck a woman crossing the street to get into a cab in Brooklyn, officials said.


She was rushed to Bellevue Hospital with head trauma and was listed in critical condition. The hit-and-run driver sped off and has not been caught, police said.
