A former staffer for disgraced Gov. Andrew Cuomo was killed by a passing car after he was kicked out of a Lyft by an angry driver in the middle of a Delaware thoroughfare.
Sidney Wolf, 43, was fatally struck on Coastal Highway (Route 1) at about 1:44 a.m. Sunday when the driver stopped in the left lane and told Wolf and five of his friends to get out, according to the Delaware State Police.
“Shocked & saddened to hear this tragic news,” Cuomo tweeted about his former senior policy adviser. “Sid was a phenomenal public servant who worked relentlessly for the betterment of all NY’ers.”
The driver of a Toyota Corolla behind the Lyft — thought to be a Honda Pilot — switched lanes to avoid the stopped SUV and hit Wolf, who had just gotten out of the rear passenger side and was standing in the roadway.
The other five passengers, who were not identified, were uninjured. The 27-year-old driver of the Toyota remained on the scene, state police said.
