With all of the vehicle-related clues the NCPD has to work with, one would have expected a speedy arrest. Maybe the DMV's computers are down.

Jeff is one of the most caring physicians I have ever met. What a great loss for his family and patients. My prayers are with them during this time of sorrow.

He was not a heart doctor. He was a pulmonary doctor. A friend of mine.
I worked at the hospital in the 90s and he was a very caring doctor. always asked how things are, great with patients!

Rest in peace, my friend.
Shalom.

Maybe the partial plate is wrong. The eyewitness was probably educated on Long Island, after all. Perhaps they need to spend more time "axing" questions at the "lie-berry"

My Mom phoned me yesterday morning with this tragic news and I truly felt like I lost a family member! We've been patients of Dr. Jeffrey Siegel's for several years now and I don't know of any other doctor who was as naturally caring as he was. My prayers are with his family and staff at this extremely difficult time!

I was at the scene when this tragedy occurred. I was standing half a block away when the accident occurred and to my recollection only one person saw the actual impact. I am not sure if he is the person who reported the license plate letters – what I do know is that it was raining very hard at the time of the accident and that there were no other people on the street. When I head that someone had seen the license plate I was shocked. By the time that I looked in the direction of the accident, which couldn’t have been more than 2 seconds after I heard the impact, all that could be seen was the gold Honda speeding around a bend in the road. I and the 3 other gentleman raced over to see if the man needed help. I truly hope that the person who gave the information about the license plates was honest in what he saw and that the animal who fled the scene is apprehended and punished to the full extent of the law.

I am astounded by your disrespectful indifference to the tragic death of a beloved and respected member of our local medical community. This brilliant physician was a caring and compitent professional, who, contrary to your ingnorant belief, was a well educated citizen of Long Island.

What is it with the rash of unsolved hit and run accidents?

One would think it was "bad for business" not to solve these.

Does anyone know if anything further has happened with this horrific accident. I was also a patient of Dr. Siegel's and he, under any circumstance, was a wonderful, caring, compassionate, talented doctor. I really hope that this heinous crime does not go unpunished. Last I had heard they found the car but the owner would not cooperate - whatever happened to arresting someone for obstruction of justice!!!

Contrary to the other poster's opinion, it seems it is "bad for business" to solve these hit and runs or charge anyone.

Powerful people? Payola? What do you think?

There's nothing like that here...this is all about a dirtbag kid, hated by most, being protected by a mother living with so many males in the house that the cops can't specifically pin it on her son.....no power, no money, just scum and garbage...to think absolute filth like these people could take someone like Jeff away from the community and family he served is one of the greatest inequities in life.....the flip side is that Davoudi and his stanky mother can run, but they can't hide. Their time is coming.....nuff said....

I hear you on this case, but there are many more hit-and-run cases than this one, and most do not seem to rise to the level that authorities do anything reactively or proactively to solve them.

Leads me back to the conclusion that it is considered "bad for business" to acknowledge or pursue them.

Why dosn't D.A. Rice drag the owner of the Honda in front of a Grand Jury. Is she to busy giving the drug dealers a deal they can't refuse.

And why doesn't NCPD go out and find the rest of the perps in these crimes.

I am sure the kid has done something very wrong & I feel sadden for the family of Dr. Siegel for their lost, keep in mind this accident has destroyed two people life’s. A family without father and panic 19 years old kid which his life has been destroyed by making wrong decision. I don't think Dr.segal in heaven asking for hard punishment for this kid.
I pray for both families.

Freddie, baby.....night courses please...English as a fifth language perhaps....Thanks for speaking for Jeff, by the way. He'd be proud to have you as his spokesman. I'm sure his 3 young, fatherless daughters and his hundreds of patients completely agree with you. Ever think of running for office? I thought Barrack had a way with words and thought until I read your passionate discourse.....

Obviously the family of this degenerate 19 year old is as pathetic as he is a coward. For his mother to have protected him as long as she did makes her just as guilty and she should be prosecuted as well. Even "throwing the book" at this brat will never fill the void in the wife and 3 children that have been left behind. That is the family that should receive prayers - not the family/cowards who caused this tragic incident.
