A pedestrian injured in a Wednesday night accident on Grand Avenue in Baldwin has died, Nassau County police said Thursday morning.
Evelyn Ramos-Coto, 33, was hit by a vehicle while she was in a marked crosswalk, headed across Grand Avenue from west to east shortly before 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, police said.
She had still been conscious as emergency workers took her from the accident scene but she was pronounced dead a short time later by hospital staff, at 6:49 p.m., police said.
The accident took place as she walked across the southbound left lane of Grand Avenue, at Lorenz Avenue. She was hit by a southbound 2001 Ford driven by a 37-year-old man, police said. The driver's name was not made public.
"The vehicle was impounded for brake and safety checks," a Thursday police release said. "Detectives report no apparent criminality at this time."
In a separate accident, in Suffolk County, reported at 6:26 p.m. Wednesday, a teen boy was still in serious condition Thursday morning after he was hit by a sport utility vehicle in West Babylon, police said.
