    A hit-and-run crash that killed a Queens mom claimed a second victim yesterday - her 2-year-old son - and left their family pleading for justice. "He should pay for the lives he took," grieving dad Franklin Chimbo, 25, said of the cowardly driver who mowed down his girlfriend and their son.

    A green Ford Econoline van with gold rims and a custom grille, blasting music, swerved down the road at them.


    I hope they find this jerk!

    I held it together until I read that the baby ask where his mommy and daddy were. I'm sitting here with tears running down my face. Poor family.

    I agree. I also think the chances of anyone turning that person in are slim. :(

    "I knew I would be buying my son a suit - for baptism or something - but I didn't know I would be buying it for his funeral," said Franklin Chimbo, 25. "My son will wear all white."

    A special fund has been set up at the North Fork Bank under the name Chimbo Family Fund, account No. 2094044365. Donations can be made at any North Fork branch. American Airlines also agreed to fly the bodies to Ecuador, where they will be buried.
