Per the outlet, the incident happened on the Upper West Side at about 6:30 p.m. on Friday, when the Gone Girl actress was crossing the street. The person who slammed into her is said to have been driver either a scooter or motorised bicycle and had ran a red light, before they slammed into Banes, throwing her out of the crosswalk.
“He just wiped her out,” an unidentified witness told New York Daily News. Banes is now at Mt. Sinal Morningside hospital close to Lincoln Center, where she was hit.
“The driver did not stop but continued,” her manager, David Williams said. “Luckily she was relatively close to the hospital and she was able to be transported there.”
Police have yet to arrest anyone as at press time, and they didn’t identify Banes by name; they simply said a 65-year-old woman was discovered “with severe head trauma” in the street.
“We have several days ahead of us to pray for Lisa,” Banes’ wife Kathryn Kranhold said. “If anyone has any information about the scooter driver, we ask them to please call police.”
Kranhold said Banes was meeting friends for dinner when she was hit.
