Bronx News Roundup, Sept. 28

Police are hunting for a hit-and-run driver who struck and killed a man on the Cross Bronx Expressway this morning.

A funeral service will be held Friday for the six members of a Bronx church who died earlier this month when their van crashed on the New York State Thruway.

A Bronx motorcyclist was killed on the Taconic State Parkway on Sunday.

Lehman High School's football team is one of the best in the city, but it can never play at home because its field is 20-yards short of the regulation size.

In Riverdale last night, a man traveling on a city bus squirted a mystery chemical into the driver's face.

There were few surprises at last week's Bronx Democratic County Committee Convention, unlike the 2008 event, where there were fireworks, so to speak.

In 2003, 91-year-old Nelli Hocutt was brutally murdered in her Williamsbridge home.  The trial of one of her accused killers began yesterday in Bronx Supreme Court.

Here's The Times' coverage of the borough's new “Peace in Our Streets” initiative, which was officially launched at a church on White Plains Road on Saturday.  We had a post about this yesterday.

Lawyers defending the four men accused of trying to blow up two Riverdale synagogues are asking the judge to throw out the case. The government's star witness (an FBI informant) lied repeatedly on the stand, the defense claims.

The MTA is hoping to speed up traffic on the Henry Hudson Bridge by removing toll gates and cash lanes. This doesn't mean the bridge will be free.  The new lanes will either be E-ZPass or set up for video tolling, with a camera catching a driver's license plate.

The PS 70 teacher who was reassigned after writing about her past as a stripper and prostitute, also talked about her exploits at open-mic events.
