Brothers Fight for Justice After Being Thrown From Roof of Stolen Car in Queens, Falls Into Coma

Richmond Hill, Queens (WABC) — Police said two 15-year-old boys were arrested in a Queens carjacking incident, leaving one in a coma.

Authorities say the suspect drove into the Lexus of 28-year-old Torrey Thompson around 10 p.m. Monday. The car was parked near his Taco Bell on Liberty He Avenue.

The victim, who was outside the vehicle to pick up his DoorDash order, tried to stop the suspect from escaping. Authorities said the suspect fled to Lefferts Boulevard with the victim hanging from his rack on the roof of the car.

The driver of the car lost control while speeding and hit a fire hydrant, causing the car to roll over.

Police said the suspect got out of the car and fled, but Thompson was knocked to the ground and seriously injured.

Officers stopped two of the three suspects and took them into custody.

Thompson’s severe brain swelling, broken jaw, feeding and breathing tubes caused his brother to spend hours at his hospital bedside.

“My little brother may never come out of his coma. And he’s asleep. He’s not reacting to anything. It’s just devastating. I’m just starting to live,” said Tedra Thompson Grant.

Thompson is an aspiring music artist who loves to bring joy to others through singing. Now his brother is his voice, fighting to give him justice.

“I saw it and it felt like I was watching something out of a movie. Yeah, like someone’s on the roof and you popped out to the side. When I saw it, I I was shocked,” said Sharon Thompson.
