Snowplow Driver Who Killed Pregnant Woman Walks Away With Three Tickets

| by Sarah Fruchtnicht

The driver of a snowplow was not charged after fatally striking a pregnant Brooklyn woman in a shopping center parking lot last week.

Wu Wu, 42, was driving a Bobcat snowplow in the parking lot of Fei Long Shopping Center when he struck 36-year-old Min Lin as she loaded groceries into her car Thursday.

Lin later died at Maimonides Medical Center. Her nearly full-term baby boy was emergency delivered.

Wu was given three summonses because the Bobcat lacked an inspection sticker, headlight, and license plate light. No criminal charges were filed.

“He should have been fingerprinted, then jailed with a high bail,” Faizi Javaid, the owner of Fei Long told the New York Daily News.

“It’s not enough,” said Magda Sadowski, Lin’s Sunset Park neighbor. “He should be punished for this. Three tickets? Come on! It’s a joke!”

“It should have been more,” said neighbor Angela Christian, 24. “She’s gone! That’s crazy. That’s so sad. He should have been paying attention.”

The 6-pound 6-ounce boy was doing “better” on Saturday, his father Jin Lin told the New York Post. A hospital spokeswoman told the Daily News that the baby was still in critical condition Saturday.
