A Lamborghini driver with a lengthy rap sheet was nabbed Thursday for allegedly killing a woman in a Christmas Eve car crash in Queens last year, cops said.
Jason Liriano, a reputed gang member from Brooklyn, faces charges of criminally negligent homicide and leaving the scene of an accident that resulted in death in the grisly smash-up that killed Ritawantee Persaud.
Persaud, 54, of Ozone Park, was a passenger in a Toyota Camry that Liriano’s $216,000 Lamborghini Urus allegedly slammed into at the intersection of 103rd Avenue and Rockaway Boulevard on Dec. 24, 2020, cops said.
Liriano fled the scene on foot, leaving behind his 26-year-old passenger who suffered head and spinal injuries, cops said.
Cops later uncovered a large quantity of marijuana and a knife in the sports car, police sources said.
The driver of the Camry also suffered severe trauma to the head and body but recovered from his injuries.
Liriano has 34 prior arrests, ranging from burglary to petit larceny, criminal possession and various assaults, police sources said. All arrests took place between 2007 and 2021 — and his latest bust is the eighth this year.
