D.A. Bragg Announces Indictment in Fatal Road Rage Incident

September 27, 2023

Manhattan District Attorney Alvin L. Bragg, Jr., today announced the indictment of ANDRE MOSBY, 26, for killing a 54-year-old man with his car following a fender bender incident. MOSBY is charged in a New York State Supreme Court indictment with one count of Manslaughter in the Second Degree. [1] 

“Andre Mosby allegedly escalated a confrontation by using his vehicle as battering ram with such force that a man was killed. Vehicular violence takes a significant toll on our communities and families. Nothing can bring back the victim to his family and friends, but my Office pledges to provide appropriate accountability,” said District Attorney Bragg. 

According to court documents and statements made on the record, MOSBY was driving on East 60th Street in Lenox Hill when he hit the victim’s car while trying to merge into another lane. The victim exited his car and the two men began arguing. The victim retrieved a knife from his car, slashed two of MOSBY’s tires and stood in front of the car holding the knife. MOSBY accelerated his vehicle and plowed the victim into a glass storefront. He was pronounced dead at the hospital less than 30 minutes later. 

MOSBY was driving with a suspended license at the time of the incident. 

The case is being prosecuted by Assistant D.A.’s Shilpa Kalra and Abel McDonnell, under the supervision of Assistant D.A. Erin Tierney (Chief of Trial Bureau 30) and Executive Assistant D.A. Lisa DelPizzo (Chief of the Trial Division). 

D.A. Bragg thanked Detective Randy Rose of the Manhattan North Homicide and Detective Stephan Koustoubardis of the 19th Precinct Detective Squad.
