    Woman Dies After Taxi Hits Her in Manhattan

    A 76-year-old Florida woman died Saturday after being struck by a taxi as she walked in a crosswalk in Manhattan, emergency officials said.

    The accident happened as the taxi was making a left turn off Madison Avenue onto East 60th Street on the Upper East Side.

    The woman, identified as Amelia Sterental of Miami, was transported to New York-Presbyterian Weill Cornell Medical Center in critical condition. She was pronounced dead there, emergency officials said.

    The driver hadn't been cited or arrested as of Saturday evening, police said.

    The New York City Taxi and Limousine Commission said the driver has been licensed since at least 1989, when the agency's records were computerized. His license has been suspended pending an investigation by the NYPD's Collision Investigation Squad, the TLC said.
