Pedestrian killed in Baldwin

A tragic accident claimed the life of a pedestrian in Baldwin yesterday. According to a police report from the First Squad, an unnamed 37-year-old male was driving a 2001 Ford south “in the left lane of Grand Avenue at Lorenz Avenue when he struck a 33-year-old female pedestrian.”

Police said the woman involved in the accident, Evelyn Ramos-Coto, was crossing the street in a marked crosswalk at 6:26 p.m. on Jan. 30, when she was hit. James Imperiale of the NCPD said she was transported to an area hospital, but was pronounced dead at 6:49 p.m. The vehicle was impounded for brake and safety checks, police said, but detectives reported no apparent criminality at this time.
