NEW YORK CITY — A cabbie was killed when a drunken teenage hit-and-run driver careened into his taxi and then sped away in Queens early Sunday morning, police said.

Ansumana Dukuly, 38, of The Bronx, was driving on the Grand Central Parkway near 180th Street in Jamaica Estates at 3:20 a.m., when a Honda slammed into him, forcing his cab into the median, according to cops.

Dukuly was pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver of the Honda, Roberto Depena, 19, of Kew Gardens Hills, allegedly fled the scene but was picked up nearby.

He was hit with a slew of charges, including manslaughter, leaving the scene of an accident, DWI and speeding, police said.
