QUEENS, NY – A 21 year old man was killed in a strange accident yesterday when considering purchasing a used car. The victim, identified as Michael Kosanovich, was killed on Wednesday, December 11th at 148th Street and Foch Boulevard.

While looking at the vehicle, the owner, who was sitting inside, accidentally pushed the car’s remote ignition.
