A man was brutally killed while driving his livery car in Brooklyn Thursday.

The driver, identified as 54-year-old Uro Orji Ama, who has close family ties to Rosedale, was dropping off two passengers near Lott Avenue and Thomas Boyland Street in Brownsville around 5:30 p.m. when one of them allegedly stabbed him with what a witness described as an umbrella, said police.

After the attack, the car reportedly crashed a short distance away and the suspects, a man and a woman, escaped from the scene.

Ama was taken to Brookdale Hospital where he was pronounced dead, said police.

The NYPD is offering a $12,000 reward for any information leading to an arrest and conviction.
