Elderly woman fatally hit by van in Marine Park
Police say an elderly woman was fatally struck by a minivan in Marine Park Monday evening near the intersection of Avenue U and Hendrickson Street.
The 87-year-old woman was hit after two vehicles collided and one careened onto the sidewalk, police say. Emergency responders rushed the woman to Beth Israel Hospital, but she was pronounced dead on arrival.
One resident says the intersection near King's Plaza Shopping Center is especially dangerous and at least five accidents have occurred there recently.
