The accident happened early Sunday morning at Liberty Avenue and 108th Street in Ozone Park, and surveillance cameras caught everything.
Police say a pedestrian leaving a grocery store across from his place of work was struck by a vehicle travelling eastbound on Liberty Avenue. Rohan was tossed like a rag doll along Liberty Avenue. A second vehicle then followed close behind. The 47-year-old was thrown into a steel pillar and was motionless on the pavement.
The driver then fled the scene.
Rohan was taken to Jamaica Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
The married father of 2 from Guyana, had just left the corner deli, and was heading back to the bar where he worked.
"Just take him to the hospital, at least, we're all human beings - can't treat people like this," said Singh.
Police are looking for a dark colored Nissan Maxima.
People in the neighborhood say Rohan was a loving man who would help anyone - now his family needs help.
"If anyone could come out and say what happened - I don't want this to happen to anyone else," said the victim's sister, Feione Prsaud.
