QUEENS: RESTAURANT WORKER KILLED IN CRASH A busboy bicycling home from work was killed by a drunken driver in Flushing on Saturday night, the police said yesterday. The busboy, left, identified as Angel Quizphi, 24, of Corona, was struck by a blue van as he traveled west on Northern Boulevard near Prince Street shortly after 11 p.m., the police said. He was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver, Yung Choe, 37, of 45-51 156th Street in Flushing, was arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated and vehicular manslaughter, the police said. Mr. Quizphi's fiancée, Nancy Lazo-Padilla, 26, said he had immigrated from Ecuador five years ago. "He always comes home, he never stays out, that's why I was worried," she said.
