Woman Left to Die in Street

HICKSVILLE, Long Island, New York — Nassau County police detectives investigating a pedestrian accident in Hicksville say the victim died, and the vehicle that hit her took off from the scene of the crash. According to the Daily Voice, a woman, who police would later identify as a 54-year-old female, died shortly after she was hit by a vehicle that fled the scene of the crash. Detectives closed the area surrounding West John Street and Kuhl Avenue to investigate the fatal collision. The fatal pedestrian crash happened around 5:45 a.m. on Tuesday morning. Police have not identified as suspect to this point and have asked for the public’s help identifying the perpetrator.

New York City’s Vision Zero failed. Traffic fatalities in New York City skyrocketed in 2019, according to a report published in The Guardian, even after advocates of the program developed by the Mayor’s Office for the City of New York celebrated initial successes. Launched in 2014, Vision Zero was touted as the reason why traffic deaths in New York City, which include motor vehicle crashes, pedestrian accidents, bicycle accidents, and motorcycle accidents, reached a low-water mark of 200. Why the trend dramatically and suddenly reversed is the subject of much debate. At one point in 2019, the death toll rose more than 30 percent over the same time in 2018 in New York City.

The death toll on New York City streets was declining each year steadily from 2014 until 2018. Critics of the Mayor’s beloved Vision Zero argue that the City stopped implementing program initiatives that made the program work, such as rebuilding dangerous intersections and installing bicycle lanes. The Mayor’s detractors say that the City bowed under pressure from motorists who inundated City Hall with complaints about suffocating traffic building up throughout the City.

The Mayor’s office rebuffed criticism. A spokesperson said that the City is undertaking a “robust program” to install safer intersections change traffic signals to reduce speeding, and expanding bike safety.
