A 69-year-old woman was killed Tuesday night after being hit by an SUV while she was crossing Broadway at 75th street.
An 18-year-old man driving an Infiniti SUV crashed was traveling South on Broadway around 8:30 p.m. when he hit the woman while she was crossing the street. He had the light and the woman “ran in front of the vehicle’s path and was struck by the front of the vehicle, throwing her to the ground,” according to NYPD. She sustained trauma to her head and body, and was taken to St. Luke’s hospital.
A witness told us the 18-year-old looked distraught as he talked to police. “It was really sad. Tons of people standing around watching. The young man looked like he was 12. Was probably more like 20. He looked like he was crying.”
Officials from the NYPD’s Collision Investigation Squad are investigating.
