Unlicensed Teen Reports Car Stolen After Staten Island Fatal Crash and Hit-and Run

Unlicensed Teen Reports Car Stolen After Staten Island Fatal Crash and Hit-and Run
Calendar icon February 24, 2022

An unlicensed teenage driver went through a Staten Island stop sign and crashed into a Mercedes-Benz killing the woman in the vehicle. According to the authorities, the teenager later went to the police to report the car involved in the Staten Island fatal crash as stolen.

His ploy started to fade away when the police determined that eighteen-year-old Prince Nesbitt-Hall was driving the Honda Accord that T-boned the other car.

The teenager did not stop at the stop sign at Elson St. and Lamberts Lane and broadsided the Mercedes. Kauser Akhund, the front-seat passenger, was killed and her seventy-year-old husband who was driving was severely injured. 

The front part of thе Honda was destroyed in the Staten Island fatal crash. 

Nesbitt went to the 121st Precinct station house about a half-hour after the crash to report the alleged theft. The teen hoped the police would believe his story that someone else was driving his car. 

He was charged with multiple counts, including manslaughter, leaving the scene of an accident, falsely reporting an incident and felony assault. Nesbitt was also charged with criminal possession of the stolen property because the car he drove was stolen back on Feb. 6 in Hackensack, N.J.

The teenager lives in Rahway, N.J., and has three arrests in Staten Island, two for petty larceny and one for grand larceny, said the police.

The victims were only a mile from their home when they were hit by Nesbitt.

  • Cellino Law and more specifically my attorney, Gregory V. Pajak, Managing Attorney, and as a whole the Cellino Law Firm and its organization. This is by far one of the most professional law firms and attorney I have ever engaged with and retained in my 35 years. The level of professionalism goes beyond words, the care and constant engagement with me as the client was touching. I was never ever just treated as simply a CASE with potentially a significant dollar number attached to my file. I was engaged regularly, Tracey (Ass’t) and Greg always made sure to remain constant, as well as consistent in overseeing that my case was handled properly and that it did matter in many ways - ensuring that the end result(s) would be fair and reasonable to my case/injury. The regular follow-up calls were very satisfying, knowing that you’re involved in your case matters significantly AND always. One of my main items to recognize Cellino Law and Gregory is that whenever I called, I was able to get through to speak directly to my Lawyer and he would answer any if not all of my questions in a very professional and genuinely caring manner. I always felt cared for and protected legally and more importantly, I was made feel as a human being that was being cared for and always keeping me abreast of all matters connected to the case. There was never a point I felt let down, on the contrary -the level of service was “STELLAR”. Greg is the consummate professional, a ‘role model’, if you will, for what other attorneys should strive to become when dealing with their clients.


  • My experience during the time of negotiations was extremely positive. Josh Sandberg handled my lawsuit with the utmost integrity. He returned all my phone calls in a timely manner and answered all my questions. Josh made things less stressful. I would highly recommend Josh and the entire staff at Cellino Law.


  • Joe and I just wanted to send you this note thanking you for the professional way you handled our lawsuit. Your kindness was extremely appreciated in a very difficult time. When we found out the people that caused the accident had no insurance, we thought our chances of receiving any settlement was nonexistent. Once we met with you and released you were able to help us our minds were put at ease. Your aggressive manner of handling the case exceeded our expectations. Please feel free to use us as a reference. Thank you so much and best wishes,

    Danielle and Joe

  • Now that reality has set in, I want to thank you for all your work and assistance in obtaining my settlement for the pelvic mesh. This money will make my life so much easier in the future. Medicare just isn't sufficient. I know that I will have enough to live on. I truly appreciate of your efforts. Thank you!
