Posted on Jun 28, 2011

A New York City car accident took the life of an 89-year-old woman on Thursday June 2, 2011. The crash occurred just after noon at the corner of West 145th Street and Seventh Avenue. According to reports of the accident, a Lincoln Town Car livery cab was attempting to turn left onto 145th Street when it was hit by a Toyota pickup truck that was traveling south on Seventh Avenue.

The force of the crash allegedly sent the pickup truck onto the sidewalk and into a group of pedestrians. Leonia White was among the group of pedestrians. She was taken to Harlem Hospital where she was pronounced dead. Three other pedestrians and the driver of the Lincoln Town Car livery cab were taken to St. Luke's Hospital with what are believed to be non-life threatening injuries.

Witnesses to the crash report that this intersection may be particularly dangerous for pedestrians. Officials are still investigating the cause of this New York pedestrian fatality.

We extend our sincere condolences to the family and friends of Leonia White and we extend our best wishes for a full and complete recovery to everyone who was injured in this New York City crash.
