NEW YORK (WPIX)—The CEO of Jennifer Convertibles was arrested and charged with DWI after he struck and killed a 45-year-old bus depot security guard in Queens Wednesday night, law enforcement officials confirm to PIX 11 News.
Harley Greenfield, 65, was driving southbound on the Whitestone Expressway, when his 2010 Chevrolet Cobalt struck Mohammed Rohman around 10:45 p.m. Roham was pronounced dead at the scene.
Investigators say Roham, who worked for Summit Security and was contracted to guard the MTA's College Point depot, was on his way to Burger King.
Greenfield, who lives in a posh apartment on York Avenue on the Upper East Side, stayed at the scene of the fatal accident, cops said. He told officers he had one vodka drink and a glass of wine at about 7:15 p.m. However, cops say he refused to take a breathalyzer test.
An MTA bus driver reportedly witnessed the accident and quickly alerted authorities.
If found guilty of driving under the influence of alcohol, Greenfield faces just a fine.
Officials say Greenfield could face more charges.
As CEO of Jennifer Convertibles, Greenfield oversees a corporation that owns a chain of sofabed specialty retail stores and leather specialty retail stores located throughout the United States. The company's stores include 175 Jennifer Convertibles stores and 16 Jennifer Leather stores.
