Elderly Woman in Critical Condition After SUV Backs into Her
The collision Monday morning was the second serious accident involving pedestrians in two days.
An elderly Fort Lee woman was injured Monday when she was hit by an SUV backing out of a driveway on Edwin Avenue in Fort Lee, police said.
Mary A. Hickey, 86, of Fort Lee, was walking north on Edwin at about 9:11 a.m. Monday, when she was struck by a 2010 Nissan Rogue driven by 29-year-old Arbnore Tafila, who was backing out of her own driveway, according to Fort Lee police.
“Mrs. Hickey was injured in the collision and transported to Hackensack University Medical Center Emergency Room,” according to a statement released by the Fort Lee Police Department.
Police said Tuesday morning that Hickey is listed in critical condition, but that the extent of her injuries was unknown.
An accident investigation by the Fort Lee Police Department Accident Investigation Unit is ongoing, but police said Tafila was not charged.
The incident came just one day after a fatal accident involving a pedestrian at Lemoine Avenue and Whiteman Street.
