Woman Dead, 2 Kids Injured After Bronx Car Crash: Police

A woman was killed and two young children were injured after a car collision in the Bronx, police said Sunday.

Officers responded to a 911 call about the accident in the Woodlawn Heights neighborhood at Webster Ave and East 233rd Street Saturday evening, according to police.

When officers arrived at the scene, they discovered Elizabeth Wimmer, 58, unconscious and unresponsive, according to police. EMS transported Wimmer to North Central Bronx Hospital where she was pronounced dead, according to police.

A 5-year-old and a 10-year-old who were sitting in the rear of the vehicle were taken to Jacobi Medical Center in stable condition, police said.

Authorities say a preliminary investigation shows a 2009 Honda CRV was traveling northbound on Webster Avenue when for unknown reasons the vehicle crossed the double yellow lines into the southbound lanes and hit the 2000 Saturn Sedan occupied by Wimmer and the two children.

The Honda driver was taken to Jacobi Medical Center in stable condition, according to police.

No arrests have been made. The investigation, which is being handled by NYPD's Collision Investigation Squad, is ongoing.
