Liriano was driving a Lamborghini Urus west on Rockaway Boulevard, at the intersection of 103rd Avenue in Ozone Park, around 7 p.m. last Dec. 24 when he hit a Toyota Camry as it turned left onto the avenue from the boulevard, the NYPD said.

Persaud, who was riding in the back of the Camry, was taken to Jamaica Hospital Medical Center with severe head and body trauma after the crash, police said. She was pronounced dead at the hospital.

The Toyota Camry’s 50-year-old driver and a 26-year-old woman riding in the Lamborghini were both hospitalized in stable condition, according to police.

Liriano fled the scene on foot after the crash, the NYPD said. His attorney information wasn’t immediately available Thursday.
