An 89-year-old woman who was struck by a motorist while crossing 48th Street near Northern Boulevard late last month has died, according to the NYPD.

Yuitmay Szeto, from 46th Street in Astoria, succumbed to her injuries Monday, nine days after being hit by a driver operating a Dodge Durango, the NYPD announced today.

Szeto was crossing 48th Street on April 23 at around 2:40 p.m. when the driver made a left turn out of a parking lot and hit her. The driver, who was exiting the parking lot where BJ’s Wholesale Club is located, was turning northbound on 48th Street. The incident took place a few blocks away from where Szeto lived.

EMS responded to the scene and transported Szeto to NYC Health and Hospitals/Elmhurst where she was listed in critical condition.

The driver, a 37-year-old man, remained on the scene. He too was taken to NYC Health and Hospitals/Elmhurst but with minor injuries.

No arrests have been made. The investigation remains ongoing and is being conducted by the NYPD Highway District’s Collision Investigation Squad.
