Police arrested a 23-year-old woman who they say is responsible for fatally striking a motorcyclist with her car on May 27, while she was allegedly intoxicated.

Madison resident Jasmin Morales-Cruz was driving along Ocean Parkway in Kensington, when she struck 28-year-old Evvon Alexander shortly before 4 a.m., according to police.

Alexander had been traveling in the opposite direction on Ocean Parkway, when he attempted to turn onto Beverly Road before the fatal collision, cops said.

First responders took Alexander to Maimonides Hospital, where doctors pronounced him dead.

Cops arrested Morales-Cruz on the scene, charging her with driving while intoxicated, vehicular manslaughter, and unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle.

Reasonable discourse

Henry Ford from Bay Ridge says:
Here we go again! This city can't go a day without some self entitled, knucklehead, driver causing carnage.

Henry Ford from Bay Ridge says:
Yeah, it’s shocking that in a city of ten million people there will be a car accident or two. Make sure those bells on your bikes work, whiny transplants.

Henry Ford from Bay Ridge says:
It's amazing that some loser pretending to be me is defending a drunk driver. Did you even read the article? Are you able to read, fake Henry?

THE REAL Henry Ford from Bay Ridge says:
Did anyone notice how FAKE Henry Ford Never acknowledged if he read the article or if he can actually read?

Henry Ford from Bay Ridge says:
Yes, one of us can focus for more than one sentence and it ain’t you. Obviously we should hang a million drivers because one idiot in 10 million drove drunk. Your act is tedious already. We get that you hate cars because you associate them with getting bullied back in your pathetic cow town. No one cares so move on already.

Henry Ford from Bay Ridge says:
FAKE Henry Ford is too much of a coward to use his own name and too stupid to have a valid argument. Born and raised in Brooklyn and a die hard Yankees fan, so you can go suck it just like the Mets. Jim is right, they need to take the comments away, too many idiots like FAKE Henry Ford.

Mike from Williamsburg says:
They could just install Disqus comments which require a login and let commenters thread. They took away comments for a day or two but why come to this site so much if not for the comments?

Henry Ford from Bay Ridge says:
Disqus won't work. Most of the people who comment here are too stupid to figure it out. They lack basic grammar and sentence structure.

When Sheldon Adelson buys this paper he will disable comments. Until then we are stuck with looney tunes Henry Ford wannabe obsessively refreshing this site.

Henry Ford from Bay Ridge says:
"obsessively refreshing this site" -Says the D-BAG who still replies to comments from days ago. Your obsession with me is not healthy, get a hobby or therapy. Calling someone "looney tunes" when you're still a proud drumpf supporter = the height of irony.
