A 69-year-old Kew Gardens Hills woman was struck and killed just blocks from her 152nd Street home last month, the NYPD announced on Friday.

It happened just after 2:30 p.m. on Nov. 5 when Ruizhen Dong attempted to cross Jewel Avenue when she was hit by a motorist in a 2017 Toyota traveling westbound, police said.

Officers from the 107th Precinct responded to a 911 call of a pedestrian struck and found the victim on the roadway with trauma to her head and torso, police said. EMS transported Dong to New York Presbyterian Hospital-Queens in Flushing where she succumbed to her injuries.

The 76-year-old man who was driving the Toyota remained at the scene and was not arrested.

The NYPD is still investigating.
