Woman, 72, killed by hit-and-run driver who ran red light in NYC crash


A 72-year-old woman was killed by a hit-and-run driver in a Queens crash early Tuesday, police said.

The victim was riding in a Honda SUV headed north on 125th St. in South Ozone Park when a Lexus headed west on 111th Ave. blasted through a red light about 1:25 a.m., cops said.

The Lexus slammed into the Honda and then into a storefront, leaving both vehicles mangled wrecks.

The elderly passenger was ejected from the Honda and died at the scene. The 56-year-old woman driving the Honda was taken to Jamaica Hospital in critical but stable condition.

The Lexus driver abandoned the wrecked vehicle and ran off. Cops are still seeking the driver.
