QUEENS — Two people were critically injured when a car flipped in a Murray Hill crash on New Year's Eve, according to a witness and the FDNY.
Annamarie Tromp, 56, was on 172 Street when an westbound white 2003 BMW sedan hit and flipped her car at 33rd Avenue about 2:42 p.m., according to a witness and the FDNY. Tromp and another person suffering from critical injuries and were rushed to New York Hospital Queens, an FDNY spokesman said, but she died at the hospital, police said.
The BMW's driver, a man, 24, who was not immediately identified, slammed on his brakes, but didn't come to a rest until he hit a parked car, according to a neighbor.
"I was surprised when he walked out of the car. He was a little wobbly. He looked completely in shock," said Tamara, who declined to give her last name, but saw the crash steps from her front door.
"He looked at me and said, 'I didn't see her coming,'" Tamara said.
Police arrived moments after the crash and smashed back window of the woman's white 2012 Nissan to pull her out, Tamara said.
After an ambulance arrived on scene, EMS put her on a stretcher and started doing CPR before rushing her to the hospital, Tamara said.
The ambulance then took the young man to the hospital as well, Tamara said.
Police said an investigation was ongoing.
