NYC high school grad with dreams of law enforcement career killed by unlicensed drunk hit-and-run driver: cops

A recent high school graduate with dreams of going into law enforcement had his life cut short by an unlicensed drunk hit-and-run driver in a Queens crash, police and the victim’s family said.

Edwin Puma was the youngest of his siblings, the 19-year-old “baby” of the family, his grieving sister, Veronica Puma, told the Daily News.

“It’s very heartbreaking. We’ve cried enough — there are no more tears,” the 34-year-old sister said. “We just try to keep the good memories we have of him alive.”

A breathalyzer test given two hours after the crash showed accused driver Jorge Serrano had a .15% blood alcohol content, nearly twice the legal limit, prosecutors said. He also lacked a valid driver’s license.
