The 57-year-old man who died after an out-of-control SUV driven by an allegedly drunk driver slammed into him Wednesday afternoon as he sat on a park bench on Staten Island served in the U.S. Navy during the Vietnam War and was on his way home from picking up a benefits check when he was hit, the man's father told NBC 4 New York. David Craig, who served six years in the Navy during the Vietnam Era but was never deployed to combat, paused to sit on the bench in Tompkinsville Park near Bay Street at Victory Boulevard when the SUV came barreling toward him shortly before 2:30 p.m. The 25-year-old driver apparently clipped another car, lost control of the vehicle, jumped a curb and hit Craig, authorities said.
