A 79-year-old woman was struck by a car and killed while crossing Bay Parkway a block away from her Bensonhurst home on July 13. Police, fire fighters, and paramedics rushed to the accident near 72nd Street after witnesses called 911 at 9:07 pm, where they found 79-year-old King Fong lying in the street unconscious.

The driver, who remained at the scene, was driving his Dodge sedan south down Bay Parkway when he struck Fong as she attempted to cross the street, according to police.

Fong was talking on her cellphone and crossing against the lights when she was struck, according to a New York Post report.

The victim was declared dead after paramedics took her to Lutheran Medical Center, according to police.
