A young woman who was struck and pinned against a light pole by a driver in Midtown East earlier this month has died, according to police.
Authorities have confirmed Mallory Weisbrod, 24, died on Sunday. She was struck by a driver at 2nd Avenue and East 49th Street on the afternoon of August 10th, and suffered serious leg injuries. The 64-year-old driver, who was operating a Mercedes-Benz, mounted a curb while heading southbound on 2nd Avenue. He also struck a 23-year-old woman and a 21-year-old woman—the former was treated at Bellevue Hospital and is expected to survive, while the latter refused medical treatment.
Weisbrod lived only a few blocks from where she was fatally struck. No arrests have been made but the NYPD says the investigation is ongoing.
