Cops say a woman is in critical condition after being struck by a graffiti-covered box truck near her Sunset Park home on Saturday.
According to authorities, on April 27, 72-year-old Youfeng Xu was crossing Seventh Avenue at 55th Street at around 11 a.m. when 67-year-old Xiang Chen, of Woodhaven, made a left turn and mowed her over.
Xu suffered severe head trauma and was transported just a few avenues away to NYU Langone Hospital-Brooklyn, where she remains. Reps for NYU Langone did not immediately respond to a request for further comment on her condition.
Chen, who remained at the scene, was arrested and charged with failure to yield to a pedestrian and failure to use due care.
