The 29-year-old driver who is accused of mowing down a young Brooklyn boy riding his bicycle never applied for a driver’s license, court papers say.
Victor Majia was arrested Saturday morning after he struck 10-year-old Dalerjon Shahobiddinov while the boy rode in the crosswalk on Foster Avenue in Kensington around 10:30 a.m., according to police.
The unlicensed driver turned left in his 2002 Ford Explorer onto Foster Avenue after the light turned green on Seton Place when he felt a bump, according to a criminal complaint.
Majia then “got out and then the defendant saw Dalerjon Shahobiddinov in the roadway and that Shahobiddinov’s bicycle was underneath the defendant’s vehicle,” the court papers said.
Cops took Majia in to custody at the scene and charged him after realizing he didn’t have a valid license.
Court papers say Majia’s license was previously suspended and never paid to have it reinstated.
Shahobiddinov was taken to Maimonides Hospital where he died, authorities said.
Majia appeared in court in Brooklyn Sunday where he faced charges of drivers to exercise due care, aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle, right of way and unlicensed operator.
The boy was the 23rd victim in the rash of bicyclist deaths this year.
