In the last moments of Michael Romano's life, he thought only of his son.
Romano, 43, and his 5-year-old boy were crossing in the middle of a block on Roosevelt Boulevard near Loney Street in Rhawnhurst around 10:52 p.m. Wednesday at the same time Roderick Williams, 22, was driving down the boulevard drunk, according to police.
Williams struck Romano, but Romano was able to push his son to safety before impact, police said. Instead of stopping to help the pair, Williams fled the scene, according to police.
An off-duty police officer was able to pull Williams over about three blocks away.
