Weiner’s Brother Killed

In Hit-And-Run

Seth Weiner, the eldest brother of Congressman Anthony Weiner, was struck by a hit-and-run driver while crossing the street near his home in Alexandria, Virginia. He died of his injuries early Saturday evening, May 20, at Fairfax Hospital.

Witnesses to the accident provided police with the car’s license plate, and driver Victoria Batista, 46, of Alexandria, was later charged with felony hit and run.

Weiner, 39, is survived by his parents, Morton and Frances, and brothers, Anthony and Jason, all of Brooklyn.

"We are stunned by the sudden loss of this sharp-witted and independent-minded man who so charmed us all his life," Frances Weiner said. "He will be sorely missed."

The funeral was held on Tuesday, May 23 at Sherman Funeral Home on Coney Island avenue in Midwood, Brooklyn.
