Elderly woman killed while crossing the street in Fordham

A 91-year-old woman was killed Wednesday trying to cross E. 194th Street and Briggs Avenue.

Witnesses say a red truck that was trying to head up a hill and make a right turn onto Briggs Avenue hit the woman. Neighbors say they were yelling for the driver to stop, but he didn't realize until it was too late.

According to witnesses, the whole thing appeared to be an accident.

Police are still investigating and have not yet released the victim's name.
