NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — A 76-year-old woman was killed when she fell in front of a vehicle in Middle Village, Queens, police said.

Giovanna Livolsi, of Queens, was crossing at a light at 75th Street and Metropolitan Avenue Wednesday when she tripped and fell just as the light turned green.

Police said Livolsi was struck and run over by a vehicle that had been waiting at the light.

Police said the driver continued a short distance before being alerted to the accident and returned to the scene and called 911.

Livolsi was taken to an area hospital where she was pronounced dead, police said.
