A chain-reaction car crash claimed the life of a Marine Park senior on Monday. Edith Shaller, 88, was walking home from the doctor's office on Avenue U near the corner of Hendrickson Street at around 3:30 pm when a black Lexus sedan rammed a green Chevy van onto the sidewalk, pinning the grandmother against a light pole.

"I'm just in shock," said her son Robert Shaller. "Fortunately, she lived a long life, but you never expect something like that. We just saw her twice over the Thanksgiving holiday." The Post reports that both drivers stayed at the scene and no charges were immediately been filed, but the Daily News notes that police are investigating whether or not the driver of the Lexus ran a red light.

Last month, a 17-year-old was killed in a chain reaction crash in front of her Staten Island high school.
