Williamsburg, NY - Driver Trying To Parallel Park Kills Holocaust Survivor
Williamsburg, NY - A 93-year-old Holocaust survivor was killed and her 68-year-old daughter injured last night after they were stuck by an SUV in Williamsburg, cops and neighbors said.
Gitzella Katz was walking with her daughter Judy Fisher, in the Taylor-Wythe houses where Katz lived, at around 9:50 p.m. when a black Toyota Highlander backed into them as the driver was trying to park, witnesses said.
â€śThey were just laying there, not moving. They were walking together. I saw them fall backward,â€ť Pessie Gelb, 44, said.
Katz and Fisher were rushed to Bellevue Hospital. Fisher was in stable condition early today.
One of Katzâ€™s neighbors said she was inseparable from her two daughters, who both live nearby.
The 26-year-old driver was taken to the hospital with chest pains. No criminality was suspected, cops said.
