QUEENS VILLAGE, N.Y. — A father was killed over the weekend after his teenage son allegedly ran a stop sign in Queens and collided with another car, police said Monday.

It happened shortly after 6 p.m. Sunday near 119 Avenue and 231 Street in Queens Village.

A preliminary investigation reveals the 19-year-old driver of a Honda sedan blew through a stop sign at that intersection and was hit by another vehicle, police said. The Honda was struck on its right passenger side.
