Woman, 82, Run Over By Car

An 82-year-old Jackson Heights woman continues to fight for her life this week, after she fell while crossing on Northern Boulevard and was run over by a car on January 4.

Police said the woman was attempting to cross Northern Boulevard at 90th Street at about 2 p.m. on the day after the recent snowstorm when she slid and fell – just as a car was turning from 90th Street onto the boulevard.

The driver of the car was unable to brake in time and the vehicle ran over the woman, causing critical injuries.

The woman was taken to Elmhurst Hospital Center, where she remained in critical condition early this week.

The driver remained at the scene and has not been charged pending the outcome of an investigation, police said. Police are also trying to determine if the woman slipped on an icy patch in the crosswalk

Police have not released the victim’s name.—Liz Goff
