A 22 year-old NJ resident was fatally struck by two taxi cabs in Manhattan just before 11:30 Thursday night.
The victim was identified as Kelly Gordon. Gordon was crossing York Avenue from east to the west at East 84th Street when she was hit by the cab going south. Then a northbound cab hit her. Gordon was rushed to New York Cornell Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
Both drivers remained on the scene and the NYPD’s Highway Collision Investigation Squad is investigating. No charges have been filed yet.
