Sigh. Blocks from where a man was killed in a hit-and-run on Friday, a 65-year-old Brooklyn woman was fatally struck by a livery cab yesterday morning. The Daily News reports that Barbara Tjornhom had been headed home from church when a driver, making a right at 6th Avenue and 52nd Street in Sunset Park, hit her. Tjornhom died at Lutheran Medical Center.
The driver, who stayed at the scene, was not charged, but Tjornhom's husband, who wasn't with his wife at the time, said, "He said he didn't see her. How could he not see her?" A witness at the scene said the driver was crying.
Tjornhom's husband also added that he asked his wife, a cancer survivor, to be careful before she left and that "she did everything for everybody."
