A pedestrian is in critical condition after being struck by a vehicle in the crosswalk while crossing Roosevelt Avenue Friday, police said.

The victim, a female, had the signal when she was hit at around 9:50 a.m. by a motorist who was turning left from 56th Street onto Roosevelt in an eastbound direction. The driver stopped at the scene, according to police.

The woman was struck by the passenger side of the vehicle and her head hit the pavement, police said. She was transported to Elmhurst Hospital with severe head injuries and is unlikely to survive, a NYPD spokesperson said.

The police did not have details as to the age or name of the victim–nor the driver.

This story will be updated when more information becomes available.

A lot of people come to this country and drive like they do back in their home country.
They don’t respect the driving laws here.


Pedestrians have right of way. Most people here cant speak English. If you cant speak english you shouldn’t be able to get a license
