Road Accident

Is this the justice Nicki Minaj father’s deserve?

He died at a hospital on Saturday 13 February 2021 after being struck on Friday evening in Mineola, N.Y., on Long Island, the authorities said.

Robert Maraj, the father of the rapper Nicki Minaj, died on Saturday after being struck by a vehicle in a hit and run on Long Island, the authorities said.

Mr. Maraj was walking in the roadway near the intersection of Roslyn Road and Raff Avenue in Mineola, N.Y., at around 6:15 p.m. on Friday when he was hit by a northbound vehicle that left the scene, the Nassau County Police Department said in a statement.

Police in New York say they arrested the driver who allegedly struck and killed Robert Maraj,

the father of rapper Nicki Minaj, last week on Long Island.

Nassau County Police Det. Lt. Stephen Fitzpatrick said on Wednesday that Charles Polevich, 70, was arrested after turning himself in.

Polevich faces charges for leaving the scene of a deadly automobile accident and for taking measures to hide or disguise his distinctive 1992 white Volvo station wagon from authorities, Fitzpatrick said, adding that police tracked it before and after the accident using security footage.

Fitzpatrick added that Polevich would likely not have faced charges if he had not fled the scene.
