STATEN ISLAND, NEW YORK, NY – The New York City Police Department is investigating after a woman was struck and killed by a Con Edison truck on Staten Island, according to the Staten Island Advance.
The victim was identified as 52-year-old Miao Ling Kuan, a resident of the borough’s Fort Wadsworth section. The accident happened last Friday at 7:48 a.m. in the area of Narrows Road South and Fingerboard Road, near the Staten Island Expressway in the Grasmere neighborhood.
