Pedestrian Run Down by Car Service Limo in Brooklyn Heights

An out-of-control car service limo struck a woman about to cross Cadman Plaza West in the north Heights with her family about 7:30 Thursday morning. The limo then smashed into the scaffolding installed around the 140 Cadman Plaza West high rise, demolishing a section.

ABC/Channel7 reports that the woman, her husband and children were on their way to become U.S. citizens at the federal court house. The victim was taken to Bellevue Hospital in critical condition -- a person posting to the Brooklyn Heights blog says the doormen at the building are reporting her dead. The driver was treated at the scene.
