A woman who was pinned between two cars in a terrifying hit-and-run incident in South Jamaica Sunday morning died from her injuries yesterday.

The Mother’s Day horror incident, which was captured on video and posted online, shows 49-year-old Florence Ngwu getting crushed between a parked Chevrolet Equinox and a parked Dodge Charger on 120th Avenue near 167th Street at around 8:30 a.m.

She was sandwiched between the cars after the driver of a stolen dump truck clipped the Chevrolet causing it to slam into Ngwu, the chilling video footage shows. Ngwu’s daughter and a male neighbor were also struck by the Chevrolet but fell onto the road.

The videographer can be heard shouting “oh my goodness, noooo” while Ngwu’s daughter frantically screams out “Mommy, Mommy.”

The truck driver, who was operating a stolen Ford F-550, then speeds away from the scene and blows through a stop sign. 

Ngwu was transported to Jamaica Hospital Medical Center in critical condition. She succumbed to her injuries Monday, police said.

Video of the deadly incident was posted by NYC Scoop, a social media page that posts about crime and traffic-related incidents in New York City.

Ngwu, who is originally from Nigeria, had worked as a nurse in a nursing home and was a mother of four, according to multiple reports.

The family had been planning to have a cookout later Sunday to celebrate Mother’s Day.

No arrests have been made and the investigation is ongoing.
