A former advisor of ex-NY governor Andrew Cuomo was killed after he was kicked out of a Lyft by an angry driver on a Delaware thoroughfare.
According to the Delaware State Police, Sidney Wolf, 43, was struck and killed by a passing car on Coastal Highway at around 1:44 a.m. on Sunday after the driver signaled to Wolf and five of his pals to get out of the vehicle.
“Shocked & saddened to hear this tragic news,” Cuomo tweeted. “Sid was a phenomenal public servant who worked relentlessly for the betterment of all NY’ers.”
A Toyota Corolla behind the Lyft – possibly a Honda Pilot – switched lanes to avoid the stopped SUV, hitting Wolf, who had just exited the rear passenger side and was standing on the highway.
All five other passengers were uninjured. While the Toyota driver remained at the scene, the Lyft driver fled.
The driver “terminated the ride” after an argument south of Anchor Way after picking up the six friends from Dewey Beach.
“This is an extremely difficult time for our family,” Wolf’s family said.
“The level of shock and pain we feel right now cannot be measured as we continue to grieve. We truly appreciate the outpouring of love and support we’ve received and kindly request that the family’s privacy is respected as we move through this process.”
