FLUSHING — A woman was arrested under the city's Vision Zero law after striking a pedestrian with her van Friday morning, police officials said.
Ana Urena, 34, was turning left onto Main Street from Maple Avenue in a Ford van just before 8 a.m. when she crashed into an 80-year-old woman who was in the crosswalk.
The victim, whose identity was not released, was transported to Booth Memorial Hospital and remained in serious condition with head trauma Friday afternoon.
Urena was arrested and charged with Failure to Exercise Due Care, a law enacted by the city's Vision Zero legislation.
Urena is one of several people arrested recently under Vision Zero, a plan to eliminate traffic fatalities and injuries.
An MTA bus driver, Reginal Prescott, was arrested for failure to yield after killing a 78-year-old woman in East Flatbush late last year.
And earlier this week, another MTA bus driver, Francisco DeJesus, was arrested for running over a teen's leg in Williamsburg.
