A 65-year-old woman was fighting for her life Friday night after authorities said she was hit crossing 53rd Avenue at 206th Street.
A spokesman for the Fire Department said emergency responders were called in to help at about 8 p.m. and brought the woman to New York Hospital Queens in Flushing.
Neighbors said the pedestrian lived less than a block from where she was struck and would frequently walk about the neighborhood.
“You would always have to turn around and see where she was to make sure you didn’t hit her,” said one 206th Street resident who asked not to be identified.
Neighbors said police performed an investigation until at least midnight and spent time questioning the female driver.
“She was shaking, obviously upset,” the 206th street resident said.
