Tyson Beckford’s Nephew Crashes Into Bus Killing Driver In NYC [Video]

How fatal, not to mention unfortunate is this?(smh) NY Daily News reports;  A stolen truck driven by model/actor Tyson Beckford’s nephew plowed into a city bus early Wednesday, catapulting its veteran driver to his death in Greenwich Village, cops said.

Instragam photos taken in the hours before the death of 17-year transit worker William Pena caught Domonic Whilby partying with his famous uncle and supermodel Shanina Shaik. By 5:30 a.m., cops had the 22-year-old Georgia man in custody as Pena’s family, friends and co-workers were left to struggle with his sudden and pointless death.  The truck was apparently stolen from the garage beneath the Maritime Hotel, near the site of a birthday party for model Shaik and about two blocks from the horrific crash.

Sources told the Daily News that the hard-partying Whilby was escorted from the club 1 Oak around 3:30 a.m., and was then tossed from the Dream Downtown Hotel after passing out on the second floor.

According to Vega, cops told him that the truck was making an early morning delivery when Whilby jumped inside and sped away.

A side door was torn from the truck as it left a skid mark on the ramp leading to the street — where one witness watched the vehicle run a red light seconds before the wreck. Beckford’s publicist was unaware of the incident, and his manager did not return a call for comment.

Wow! Our sincerest condolences go out to the victim’s loved ones. Don’t drink & drive people!
