Detectives said Andrew Zaro, whose family owns Zaro Bread Basket, is the owner of the 2009 Touareg that struck and killed Sister Jacqueline Walsh while she was walking down a Long Island street.
The 59-year-old nun was found bleeding and unresponsive on Rose Hill Road in Water Hill around 8:30 p.m. Monday.
The nun, who was in the area on a retreat with colleagues, was pronounced dead at the scene.
Authorities said Zaro had loan the vehicle, which was left abandoned in a Long Island driveway, to an employee.
The employee’s name has not been released, but according to the New York Post, the employee was twice arrested for driving without a valid license.
It’s unclear whether he had obtained a valid license since in last arrest in 2010. It is also unclear whether Zaro, who is CEO of Cavalry Portfolio Services, a debt-collection company, was aware of his employee’s arrest record.
