‘Upon arrival, officers observed a 65-year-old female pedestrian lying on the roadway with severe head trauma. EMS responded to the location and transported the aided female to Mount Sinai Saint Luke’s Hospital, where she remains in critical condition.
‘Further investigation by the NYPD Highway District’s Collision Investigation Squad determined the pedestrian was attempting to cross Amsterdam Avenue, from west to east inside the north crosswalk at West 64 Street, with the pedestrian signal in her favor, when a scooter- traveling north on Amsterdam Avenue- did pass the red traffic signal and strike the pedestrian, knocking her to the roadway.
‘The scooter then fled the location, continuing north bound. There are no arrests and the investigation remains ongoing.’
Banes has had memorable TV appearances in the likes of Nashville, The Orville, and has appeared in Masters of Sex and Royal Pains.
