NEW YORK (AP) - Police say a man jumped onto a car hood after a dispute and was fatally injured when the driver sped forward and he fell onto the pavement.

The incident occurred around 6:30 p.m. Monday.

The Advance (https://bit.ly/1HNPhfy ) says 24-year-old Robert Kunz was pronounced dead at Staten Island University Hospital.

Authorities later arrested the driver, 22-year-old Robert Messina, on charges of leaving an accident resulting in death and aggravated unlicensed operator.

It’s unclear if the defendant has an attorney who could comment on the charges.
