#visionzeroisntzero: Woman Is Killed, Four Injured, When Truck Hops Curb in Fort Greene

On Sunday, Marlon Sewell was driving his Chevrolet Suburban eastbound on Fulton Street at about 5:30 in the evening. He didn't have a license or insurance policy; he should not have even been on the road. He swerved right to avoid a city bus in front of him, and went up onto the sidewalk near South Portland Place. Victoria Nicodemus, an art curator and artist, was killed. A 37-year-old man, Victoria's boyfriend, was taken to Brooklyn Hospital in serious condition. Victoria was the 14th person to die by being struck by an automobile while on a sidewalk or inside a building since 2015 - three times as many as in 2014.

At Liberty Avenue and 170th Street, Debra Blackwell was trying to cross the street to do laundry at about 9 AM, when she was struck by an automobile. The driver got out, spoke with her briefly, and then left the scene.

The continued danger and toll of irresponsible and criminally negligent and even criminal motorists in New York City continues.
