An East Flushing woman was fatally struck by a pickup truck a few miles away from her home while crossing the street on Saturday, police said.

Edith Perez was attempting to cross Farrington Street on Saturday when a Chevrolet Silverado crashed into her.

When police arrived on the scene she had severe trauma to her head and torso. The ambulance took the woman to New York-Presbyterian Queens Hospital where she was pronounced dead.

The driver remained on the scene and was not arrested.

The investigation is ongoing by the NYPD’s Collision Investigation Squad.
