“The taxi driver was driving very fast,” said a 39-year-old witness. “He passed over her. He ran her over. I saw her moving a little bit.”
Moreover, the 58-year-old woman was pulled from under the SUV due to construction workers, doormen, and maintenance workers that were all nearby, but unfortunately, she was pronounced dead at Lenox Hill Hospital.
As for the 30-year old driver, he was uninjured.
