BROOKLYN — An Ozone Park woman was arrested on a range of charges after striking a pedestrian with her car in Brooklyn Saturday night, authorities said.
Police responded to a 911 call about a car accident on Patchen Avenue in Brooklyn and determined that a 52-year-old man had been repairing a double-parked vehicle when he was struck by a 1997 Mercury that fled the scene heading south, authorities said. Emergency Medical Services personnel took the man to Kings County Hospital, where he was listed in critical condition, police said.
The driver then allegedly struck another vehicle, in which nobody was injured, three blocks away on Patchen Avenue at the corner of Fulton Street, where police arrested Lisa Smith, 38, of Ozone Park, on charges of vehicular assault, DWI, and driving without a license, authorities said. The investigation was ongoing.
