Charles Polevich, 70, turned himself in Wednesday morning, February 17, 2021, following his involvement in a fatal hit-and-run crash with Robert Maraj, age 63. Polevich was allegedly driving a white 1992 Volvo driving northbound on Roslyn Road at Raffe Avenue/Jackson Avenue in Mineola in Long Island about 6:15 p.m. Friday, February 12, 2021 when he hit singer/rapper Nicki Minaj’s father. Robert Maraj was also walking northbound on Roslyn Road.




Nicki Minaj is the daughter of Robert Maraj — a financial executive and part-time gospel singer. Nicki Minaj, who was raised Onika Tanya Maraj-Petty, was born in the Saint James district of Port of Spain and raised in the Queens borough of New York City.

Mineola is a village in Long Island, New York, and is also the County Seat of Nassau County. Long Island comprises four counties. The western two-thirds of Long Island includes King County (Brooklyn borough) and Queens County (Queens borough), and Nassau County. The east one-third of Long Island is Suffolk County. More than half of New York City’s residents live on Long Island (in Brooklyn and Queens).

Robert Maraj, father to singer Nicki Minaj, was killed in a hit and run accident this weekend. On the evening of February 12, Maraj was struck by a car in the Long Island town of Mineola. A witness told WCBS, “We just saw a jacket ripped open, cut open, trying to make sure the man had a pulse.” Nassau County police say he was taken to nearby Roslyn Hospital in critical condition. The 64 year old Maraj was pronounced dead the following day. YouTube Tips ⓘ
