Sources are also reporting that on the morning in question, Avila was headed to work at the Rosamaria Bakery on Vreeland Avenue in Port Richmond, NY driving a black 1996 Toyota Celica on Lafayette Avenue. Franklin, meanwhile, was driving east on Cassidy Place in a 1996 Volvo S80. Shyheim allegedly ran a stop sign and slammed into Avila’s car, then hit a parked Dodge Ram before getting out of the Volvo and running away.
Sources said Franklin left blood in the Volvo and on the driver’s side airbag.
Shyheim was out on $10,000 bail at the time of the crash, awaiting further prosecution activity for his April arrest on gun and drug possession charges.
