A 22-year-old woman died late last night after an SUV struck her about six blocks from her home. The car accident happened near the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway.
Juliana Busto, of 46th Street, was trying to walk across Laurel Hill Boulevard inside the crosswalk at 47th Street when the westbound 2002 Chevy Avalanche struck her about 11:15 p.m.
She was rushed to Elmhurst Hospital Center where she was pronounced dead, police said.
