Mount Vernon – A out-of-control car hit and killed 61 year-old pedestrian, Patricia Mackey, at the corner of South Ninth Avenue and West First Street while she was walking home from work on Monday afternoon.
Apparently, according to witnesses, a gold Honda Accord was traveling on First Street, but somehow ended up in reverse, striking Mackey, and dragged her as it hit a brick wall near South Ninth Avenue.
Emergency responders were seen jacking up the car in order to pull Mackey out from underneath. But, eyewitnesses say after they dragged her from underneath the car, someone performed CPR, but there was nothing that could be done to save the critically injured grandmother.
#BlackWestchester recovered video of the accident scene just moments after the crash. Long time resident Charles Lindsay was at the scene shooting 🔴LIVE video thru Facebook.
Mouners lit candles that lined the scene as a way for loved ones to mourn the tragic loss of Mackey.
Mayor Richard Thomas called the crash “tragic.”
As for the driver, no tickets or chargres were issued, but #MVPD said their investigation is still ongoing and that could change.
