Beloved Manhattan Chef Tragically Killed In Hit and Run Car Accident With Zipcar in Union Square; Please Support the Family of the Victim By Donating to the Go Fund Me Page Set Up For Funeral Expenses

MANHATTAN, NEW YORK (December 31, 2017) – A  beloved Manhattan Chef was killed in a hit and run car accident with a Zipcar by Union Square not long before he was going to get married.

Manhattan Police have been able to identify the chef that was killed in the fatal Zipcar accident as Adrian Blanc.

The driver of the Zipcar involved in the hit and run collision appears to have gone down a one way street before striking Adrian Blanc in the crosswalk by East 14th Street.

Adrian Blanc worked for the Hill and Bay’s Restaurant and was scheduled to be married next month in Venezuela.

Manhattan police are still seeking tips from anyone that may have seen the accident or know about the driver’s location. The car involved in the crash was a 2016 Jeep Renegade SUV.

A Go Fund Me page has been set up  for the family in order to help cover funeral expenses.


Generally speaking, drivers have a responsibility to drive in a reasonably safe manner and keep a watchful eye out for pedestrians. When a commercial driver makes illegal maneuvers and causes an accident, the company that they work for may be held vicariously liable insofar as the driver was operating within the scope of their employment. A claim may even be possible if the driver responsible for a hit and run accident is never captured.
