The search is on for a hit and run driver who killed a mother walking home from work in Queens. The victim was an immigrant from Bangladesh, and had just finished her shift at McDonald's.

58-year old Nisath Hossain of Elmhurst was walking at Queens Boulevard and 71st Avenue at about 10:15 when she was struck by a minivan that kept on going.

She was transported to North Shore University Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

Relatives tell Eyewitness News that the 58-year-old mother worked every single day to help support her only child, 35-year-old Faisal Riaz. They lived together in Elmhurst, and were each other's whole world. After the recent death of her husband, Hossain and her son only had each other.

"She was a very good mother, and she loved me," said Riaz, "she loved me so much."

Police believe the vehicle that hit her was a silver minivan traveling westbound on Queens Boulevard.

So far, no arrests have been made.
