Woman Struck While Crossing FDR Drive

A woman was struck by a car while trying to cross FDR Drive last night, authorities said.

The incident, which occurred in the southbound lane at East Houston Street, was reported at 6:45 p.m., a fire department spokesperson said. The woman was found bleeding from the head and was rushed to Bellevue Hospital.

No criminal activity is suspected, the police said.

This is the second case in a week of a pedestrian being struck on FDR Drive. On Feb. 3 at 5:30 a.m., a 28-year-old man drunkenly tried to sprint across the freeway, the New York Post reported. He suffered a “severe leg injury and head trauma.”
