Police say a 69-year-old woman was killed just after noon today when she was struck by a commercial vehicle at the intersection of Adams St. and Joralemon St. Her identity has not yet been released, and the NYPD is conducting an investigation into the circumstances of the accident. This intersection is notorious for being the scene of accidents, due to its high volume of vehicular and pedestrian traffic, and, according to some, made more dangerous when the timing of the traffic lights is changed by the DOT.
Update: Police have identified the victim as Dolly Shirzada of Pierrepont St.
Update: NY1 video after the jump.
