Dentist run down

A Bay Ridge dentist was killed last week following a harrowing scene that put him in the path of two passing cars.

Officials said that 58-year-old Harry Lewner was paces away from his dental practice at 9 p.m. on December 17 when he crossed Fourth Avenue near 79th Street and was struck by a passing Kia.

The force of the impact sent him stumbling into a second vehicle, which also hit him, officials said.

The driver of the second vehicle remained at the scene as the Kia sped off into the night.

About 90 minutes later the driver of the Kia, identified as 21-year-old Karrissa McFaline of Bristol, Connecticut surrendered to cops in the 7th Precinct in Manhattan. She claimed that she knew she hit something, but didn’t realize she had hit a person until someone had told her about the accident.

Cops charged McFaline with leaving the scene of an accident. No charges were filed against the second driver.
