CYPRESS HILLS, Brooklyn — A 50-year-old woman died Thursday after being hit by a vehicle that drove off in Brooklyn back in October, according to police.

The deadly collision took place on October 28. Around 7:33 p.m., police responded to report of a collision at Liberty Avenue and Crescent Street in Cypress Hills, officials said.

Upon arrival, officers discovered 50-year-old Vabita Arjune with severe trauma to her torso, according to police.
