Cops: Brooklyn Woman Murdered Housemate, Spread…

UPDATE: Motorcycle Driver Remains in Critical, But Stable Condition at NUMC

The woman is in critical condition at NUMC.

A woman was injured in a motorcycle accident that happened at approximately 5:30 p.m. Wednesday evening on North Jerusalem Road near Bruce Drive in East Meadow.

As of 9 a.m. Friday, the woman remains in "critical, but stable condition" in intensive care unit, according to Shelley Lotenberg, director of public affairs at NUMC.

According to one witness, who chose not to be identified, the woman was cut off by a school bus while traveling westbound on North Jerusalem Road. She then crashed her motorcycle into a parked Nissan Xterra and was catapulted onto the pavement.

"It didn't look good," the witness said.

Emily Wood, 22, was sitting in her car when she heard a loud noise, and she looked outside to see the motorcycle on the ground and the woman bleeding from her head.

"I called 911," Wood said. "When they arrived, they said she had lost her pulse, but she eventually got it back."

Police shut down North Jerusalem Road between Bruce Drive and Cynthia Drive to contain the scene, and the police are encouraging motorists to use alternative routes.

This is a breaking news story, and Patch will update it as more information becomes available.

As a motorcyclist for over 50 years, it breaks my heart that " K" has to be in a place privy only to bikers. We will pray for her recovery and good health. It always the same story hit and run/ I didn't see the bike when I pulled out/made my turn/could not stop for the light! Nothing ever happens to them physically/legally/ or state involvement to have better awareness programs for all motorist,to be aware of bikes! I hope they fine the one responsibly for this unconscionable tragedy! In the wind, Lil Joe-Fl.

I wrote a piece "Nothing Ever Happens On My Street" inspired by the incident. I wanted to publish it, but don't know where at this point. My thoughts are with "Kat"....hoping she recovers fully. I met her brother and he is devoted to her. I wish I had such a good bother. She is lucky.
