Elderly Woman Dies In Breezy Accident
Sources told The Wave that Anne Reilly, 84, of 108 Arcadia Walk in Breezy Point was crossing Rockaway Point Boulevard at Beach 204 Street just before 5 p.m. on December 12 when she was reportedly hit by a Saturn automobile driven by an unidentified 78-year-old local resident.
Residents say that Reilly was in the area to place her handicapped son on an Access-A-Ride bus, but police sources would not confirm that story.
EMS responded and transported Reilly to Brookdale University Hospital in Brooklyn, where she was declared dead on arrival.
Police say that an accident investigation is ongoing, but that there is no criminality suspected in the accident.
