MTA Officer Going to Trial for Striking Pedestrian
An MTA Bridges and Tunnels officer is going to trial after being indicted for allegedly striking a pedestrian while on duty and then dropping him off in Staten Island.
His court date is set for May.
The hearings are being held for Lawrence Ffrench, a 43-year-old, who is being held without bail.
He has been appearing in court since June 2017 for the alleged hit and run incident.
He is being accused of striking a 41-year-old man near the corner of 92nd Street and Gatling Place. The man was thrown in the air and sustained serious injuries. Ffrench was an MTA officer who was on-duty at the time. It is alleged that he then picked up the victim and put him in the back of his MTA vehicle.
From there it is said he took him to Staten Island and dropped the victim off on a small access road.
