Bonifacio Enriquez, 34, of Queens, was arrested and charged with manslaughter and driving while intoxicated after he allegedly struck and killed a man on the Long Island Expressway, officials said.
The victim had struck a median near exit 41 in Jericho, and stopped his car to check the damage, police said. The victim stepped outside of the vehicle in an HOV lane to fix his bumper when he was struck by a Ford SUV and then a Nissan Altima, officials said.
The victim, whose name has not been released, was pronounced dead on the scene.
The driver was arrested on the scene. He was taken to a local hospital and was arraigned after he was deemed medically fit, officials said.
