Mom who lost son to alleged drunk driver petitions to make intersection where he died safer
A mother who lost her son is committing herself to see that justice is served in his honor, and trying to make sure that the intersection where he died is safer.
This is Regina Davis' third Mother's Day without her son.
Shiquan Dunn was killed in February 2018, when police say a drunk driver slammed into his car at Bronx Park East and Burke Avenue.
Andres Mayora is accused of starting the deadly multi-car collision. His lawyer Kenneth Russo tells News 12 that he's been out on bail ever since.
"He was out before I buried my son. We have no justice at all. There's nothing that has soothed our pain at all,” says Davis.
Davis says her son was robbed of his life at only 31, leaving behind a child.
She says prosecutors have not given her any good news.
Law enforcement sources say Mayora, whose top charge is now aggravated vehicular homicide, had no prior criminal record and that he shows up for court appearances without any violations.
This Mother’s Day, Davis is petitioning to co-name the intersection after him and demand traffic lights on Bronx Park East to deter speeding.
"It would give us some relief because the killer is walking the streets, I mean, we get nothing?" she says.
The Bronx District Attorney's Office says Mayora's case is pending.
News 12 reached out to his lawyer for a statement.
News 12 also reached out to the city's Department of Transportation about making the corridor safer.
