Cemal Dageviren, 59, was mown on Monday by a notorious driver
A gas developer on Long Island was killed by a driver of a hit-and-run who refused to pay $ 22 in gas.
Married father of the two Cemal Dageviren, 59, had worked at the Pit Stop filling station for over 20 years when he was mowed by an SUV on Monday.
Surveillance images were recorded when Dageviren stepped in front of the GMC Yukon to prevent the man from driving away without paying.
But instead of stopping, the vehicle continued and ran across Dageviren and killed him tragically.
The police are now looking for the suspect who has dreadlocks and who has seen a bright orange hat.
According to the authorities, the suspect originally tried to use a false credit card and the SUV did not have a registration number or registration.
