Elderly Woman in Wheelchair Fatally Mowed Down While Crossing Street (Video)

Disturbing footage obtained shows the moment an elderly woman in a wheelchair was run over and killed by a car while she was crossing the street in Brooklyn.

  1. 73 is too old to be driving, in most cases. Don’t bother watching video, shows nothing.

  2. If the picture shows the right Lexus sitting there, why does she have a brush guard on the front of that vehicle?? it’s like she was intended to do something like that , you don’t need a brush guard on your $70,000 vehicle unless you live in the backcountry. Sad story,

  3. Let’s not blame. Someone was not paying attention or had vision problems. It’s awful.
