Cops: Drunk driver kills Good Samaritan

On the day he planned to go house-hunting with his family, an immigrant
livery driver from Azerbaijan was killed in Brooklyn while trying to
assist a colleague with a stalled car — mowed down by a vehicle whose
driver was drunk, police said.

Rafael Rafailov, 50, a man known for his eagerness to help friends in
need, died at the scene near the intersection of Ocean Parkway and
Church Avenue in the Kensington section at about 1:20 a.m., authorities
said.

Police said Rafailov had been headed south on the Prospect Expressway
and stopped his white Lincoln Town Car to assist another livery driver
when a 2007 Toyota Camry struck him.

The driver of the Toyota, Alexey Bushuyev, 22, of Manhattan Terrace, was
arrested on charges of manslaughter, criminally negligent homicide and
drunk driving, investigators said.

Bushuyev’s breath-alcohol test showed a blood-alcohol level of .11
percent, a spokesman for the Brooklyn district attorney’s office said. A
level above .08 percent is considered evidence of driving while intoxicated.

"Oh my God!" said Rafailov’s anguished daughter Regina Rafailov, 20, a
student at John Jay College of Criminal Justice, who talked with
reporters outside the family’s home in Sheepshead Bay.

"Who goes 160 miles per hour on Ocean Parkway?"

Late Wednesday, police did not have an estimate on the speed of
Bushuyev’s vehicle. The DA’s spokesman said Bushuyev was charged with
speeding along with the other offenses. He was awaiting arraignment.

"I say it is murder," said Ronald Valachi, chairman of Concord Limousine
Inc. of Brooklyn, where Rafailov worked for more than 12 years. "Instead
of using a loaded gun, he used alcohol and a vehicle."

    I dunno, but probably not a drunk in a Camry.

    What epidemic? Only the beautiful process of Darwin removing from
    amongst us the 110 or so a day who lace the situational awareness to
    avoid their encounter with the drunk to begin with.
