Received word from several folks telling me a woman was hit by a vehicle making an ILLEGAL left turn onto Grand Avenue at 69th Place at about 12-12:30 pm this afternoon.
Captain Manson, 104th Precinct, said the driver is under arrest for a suspended license. He said the woman has died.
I reached out to Council Member Crowley's staffer to let him know about the accident and that we plan to start a committee to address this and other traffic issues. We've put in proposals throughout our civic area but need to put pressure on to get the dangerous conditions addressed!!
If anyone is interested in volunteering for the committee, please let me know. I'll reach out to Maspeth Town Hall and ask Eileen Reilly if perhaps we can meet there. Will keep everyone updated.
