Bronx, NY (December 22, 2020) – Around 2:20 p.m. on the aftermath of Monday, December 21, a hit-and-run pedestrian crash took place in the Bronx.
According to local officials, the accident took place at the intersection of Mace Avenue and Eastchester Road when two victims were struck by a passenger vehicle. The 62-year-old female pedestrian was pushing her 2-year-old grandson in a stroller in a marked crosswalk with a green light.
