A school bus driver was charged for striking an 85-year-old Forest Hills woman who died two months later, police said.
Jeanine Deutsch was trying to cross the intersection of 108th Street and 70th Road, less than a block from her home, at about 12:50 p.m. on Dec. 19, when a yellow International school bus hit her. According to police, the bus was attempting to turn right onto 70th Road from 108th Street when it struck the woman.
Deutsch was taken to Elmhurst Hospital in serious condition. She was pronounced dead on Tuesday.
The bus driver, Isaac Sanson, 47, was arrested and charged with failure to yield right of way, police said, which is now a misdemeanor rather than a traffic violation under Vision Zero law.
