A driver hit and killed a senior in Gravesend on Wednesday, police said.

The motorist at the wheel of a 2019 Chevrolet Tahoe was traveling on Cropsey Avenue towards Bay 31st Street, and fatally struck the 77-year-old woman at 6:10 pm near Bay 32nd Street, as she tried to cross Cropsey Avenue outside of a crosswalk, authorities said.

The victim, whose identity cops are withholding until they notify her family, sustained severe trauma to her head and torso, according to officials, who said paramedics rushed her to Coney Island Hospital, where doctors pronounced her dead.

The driver remained at the scene, and was not immediately arrested, according to police, who said their investigation is ongoing.
