The PTA will deliver all of the donated money to Mohammad's family.

Naiem attended P.S. 130, graduating from it in 2011. Thank you to the P.S. 130 PTA for its quick response to the family's loss and for providing the community with a way to express its sorrow and support.

The police charged the driver--78-year-old Lynn Reynolds--with felony leaving the scene of an accident causing serious injury, along with failure to exercise due care, a right of way violation and another violation of highway law, according to DNAinfo. [The charge was upgraded to leaving the scene of a fatal accident.]
