The driver got out of the SUV, punched Szabo in the face then drove away. Szabo fell back and hit his head on the pavement and lost consciousness, police said. He was taken to a hospital where he died Tuesday, according to WPIX.
"He's the nicest guy you'd ever meet," his brother Dominic Szabo told the New York Daily News. "He would help out a complete stranger or anyone else who's in need. He's the most loving and kind individual anyone could have as a friend."
