A 30-year-old woman died in a two-car crash in the Bronx

A pedestrian was killed Tuesday when a speeding car – pushed by another vehicle – struck her at a Bronx intersection in a hit-and-run caught on camera, police said.

A 30-year-old woman was crossing Washington Avenue at East 167th Street at 6 p.m. when she noticed a blue Jeep SUV driving toward her with chilling video displays.

Tragically, she stopped in the middle of the crosswalk and took a step back, watching as a black Toyota Rav4 plowed into the Jeep, but it was too late to get back to the safety of the sidewalk.

The Rav4 struck the Jeep’s rear bumper, causing the Jeep to spin and head directly toward the young woman.

She was hit by a Jeep and violently thrown into a parked car, which was also grazed by the SUV before it finally came to a stop.

According to the New York Police Department, the driver of the Jeep then jumped out of the car and fled the scene.

The recording shows three people getting out of the damaged Jeep and the driver pointing in the direction where the pedestrian hit.

According to the video, he took several items from the car and calmly left.

The Rav4 driver remained at the scene.

The pedestrian, whose identity was not released, was taken to Lincoln Hospital, where she was pronounced dead, police said.

It is unclear which vehicle had the right of way and whether either ran the red light.

No one has been charged in connection with the fatal hit-and-run. The investigation is ongoing.
