The family of an elderly woman who was hit by two cars in Crown Heights and was knocked unconscious is seeking information from anyone who may have witnessed the accident.
The woman was crossing the street at Eastern Parkway and Troy Avenue on Saturday night, December 6 (14 Kislev) sometime between 6:30 and 7:00 pm, when she was struck by a car, her daughter Dina W. told COLlive. After being thrown to the ground, she was hit by another passing car.
“She was knocked unconscious and lay in the street, while passersby began to gather around,” Dina said.
While one Lubavitch man did stop traffic and called Hatzalah, both drivers quickly drove away from the scene.
Dina and her family are trying to track down the man who stopped to help, so that they can perhaps find out further information on the two drivers, who should be held accountable for their actions, they said.
Dina’s mother was transported to the hospital in serious condition, and remains there still, while she slowly recovers from her injuries.
“My mother is still suffering from the injuries these two drivers caused her,” Dina says. “The right thing for them to do is to come forward and take responsibility for this,” she said.
Any one with any information regarding this accident, or if you are the man who flagged down fire engines and called Hatzalah, please contact the family via phone, voicemail or text at 718-666-5136. All calls will be kept confidential.
