A 67-year-old grandmother in New York has died after being hit by a vehicle trying to flee police, according to reports.

Lynn Christopher was walking with her 8-year-old grandson around 7 p.m. Saturday when she was fatally struck in the Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood of Brooklyn, according to media reports.

“They just walked away and left them on the street like they were trash. Who’s doing that?” his daughter Lesley Christopher told CBS NY. “To good people who just go about their day and just try to get on with their lives? I don’t understand.

Christopher added that “it’s the most devastating thing in the world to see your mother and your nephew hurt and you can’t go to them, to at least just be there with her”.
