Police are responding to a scene in Woodside where a woman was struck by a motorcyclist earlier today.
A woman, whose age was not disclosed, was hit by the motorcycle some time around 3 p.m. at the intersection of 58th Street and Roosevelt Avenue, a NYPD spokesperson said.
The woman has been taken to an area hospital with serious injuries, but is listed as “not likely” to succumb to her injuries, police said. Another person was also taken to the hospital with serious injuries, according to the FDNY, but it is unclear if the other person was the motorcyclist. It is also unclear if the motorcyclist left the scene.
Photos and video posted to social media show an ambulance and other FDNY and NYPD cars at the intersection, directly in front of Saint Sebastian Roman Catholic Church. In one photo posted to Facebook by Kevin Moran, one of the victims appears to be laying on the ground as responding personnel prepare to carry her into a stretcher.
A user who streamed from the accident site via the Citizen app also appears to show blood on the roadway.
