Greenwich – Senior Pedestrian Just Died
A pedestrian hospitalized after a roadside incident in Greenwich just died.
At approximately 5:30 p.m. on January 8, 77-year-old Elizabeth Deering of Greenwich was on Milbank Avenue near Anges Morley Heights Road when she was struck by a vehicle driven by 43-year-old Rye Brook of New York. Brook immediately stopped, while Deering was hospitalized following the incident. After more than a week in the hospital, Deering died from her injuries last Thursday. Authorities have yet to disclose charges that could be filed against Brook and are still investigating the crash. Witnesses are encouraged to contact officials as soon as possible.
