An accused drunken driver, busted while bolting from a gruesome Brooklyn wreck that killed his lifelong friend, wished for his own death once cops arrived.
“Just shoot me in the head please,” suspect Jovanni Padilla told a police officer after his speeding car ran a red light and plowed into another vehicle early Saturday morning, according to a gripping Brooklyn Criminal Court complaint.
“I hit my friend by mistake, please tell me he’s OK. I’m sorry for running,” he said. “My life is over, I’m dead.”
Passenger Kainen Martin, 23, was ejected on impact, with cops arriving to find the dying man unconscious on the street and the driver escaping the wreck through a window on the passenger side where his friend was sitting moments earlier, according to the complaint.
