At 8:40 p.m. on Oct. 30, police responded to a 911 call regarding a motor vehicle collision in the vicinity of 97th Street and 55th Avenue. Upon their arrival, officers from the 110th Precinct found a 47-year-old woman lying in the roadway with severe head trauma.
Sources say that the victim was trapped under the car; however, the NYPD could not confirm this detail at this time.
