Franklin Square father killed in hit-and-run
? A 46-year-old father of two was killed by a hit-and-run driver Sunday afternoon near his Franklin Square home.
Police say 46-year-old John Deiker was hit while riding his Honda motorcycle around noon on the corner of Commonwealth Street and Naple Avenue.
Neighbor Liz Narcisco says she saw Deiker trapped underneath the motorcycle and ran over to give him mouth-to-mouth, but to no avail. The father of two was taken to the hospital and pronounced dead soon after.
Police hope the pieces of the car left behind at the scene will lead them to its driver. They say the vehicle they?re looking for is a Buick Century made between 1991 and 1996.
Police ask anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-244-TIPS.
