An 84-year-old woman died as a result of injuries sustained when she was struck by a van at the intersection of Amsterdam Avenue and W. 96th Street, on Sunday, January 15th, according to a police report.
Young Kwon, of 275 West 96th Street, was crossing Amsterdam from east to west at about 7:29 p.m., when the 2018 Mercedes-Benz Metris, heading north in the center lane, hit her. The 58-year-old male driver remained on the scene and did not sustain any injuries. The woman was transported to Mount Sinai Morningside hospital in stable condition with neck and back pain, but, later that night, “her condition became life threatening and she succumbed to her injuries,” police reported.
The collision is being investigated by the NYPD’s Highway Collision Investigation Squad.
