A car hit a woman pushing a stroller across West End Avenue on Friday morning, witnesses told us. The woman had the walk sign, a witness said. According to one witness:
A 40-yr old woman was pushing a child in a stroller west-bound across West End Avenue on 74th St. An east-bound car was traveling on 74th from Riverside Dr and took a left turn on to West End, heading north. The woman and stroller were in the crosswalk (with the walk sign) when the car was trying to turn left. The car hit the woman. She was able to get up, and seemed shaken but not critically hurt. The stroller didn’t look like it got hit, and the child seemed fine (she was young, maybe 1 year old or so? so didn’t really know what was happening).
The woman got up and was bleeding a bit from the mouth, but seemed otherwise okay. Police were called immediately (and arrived promptly thereafter), and the driver had stopped and pulled over. Seemed like the driver was potentially a professional driver (was driving a black car/sedan) and was carrying two passengers in the back seat.
Another witness told us that the baby “looked to be fine” and that the mother was taken away in an ambulance. Captain Michael Falcon of the 20th precinct said the woman suffered minor injuries and there were no charges filed against the driver.
