Woman, 89, killed while crossing Riverdale Avenue


An elderly woman died just outside her home near the College of Mount Saint Vincent Saturday, after she was hit by a car.

Beatrice Kahn, 89, was reportedly crossing Riverdale Avenue  near West 263rd Street around lunchtime, when she was hit by a 2015 GMC Terrain, driven by a 35-year-old woman who was making a left turn on Riverdale Avenue from West 263rd.

When first responders arrived, Kahn was unconscious and unresponsive, with body and leg trauma. She was taken to Saint Barnabas Hospital, where she died.

The New York Police Department did not say if there were charges pending, but that the 50th Precinct's collision investigation squad was investigating.
