Woman Over-Punished In Parking Mishap

A 25-year-old Bronx woman is in a coma after a 35-year-old Queens man cold-clocked her for trying to hold a parking space in the East Village for a friend. He was later arrested, as he should be, but claims she hit him first. Regardless, this unfortunate incident could have been averted if the young lady followed the unspoken golden rule and not tried to save a spot—especially on East 14th Street where finding a place to park is already nightmarish enough.
