NYC: Woman killed, husband hurt when drag racer hops curb in Brooklyn

A woman was killed and her husband hurt when a drag-racing car hopped the curb and struck them in Brooklyn early Monday, police said. 

Three motorists were drag-racing at Eastern Parkway and Utica Avenue in Crown Heights around 3 a.m. when one of the drivers — inside a Dodge Charger — hopped the curb, police said. 

The vehicle rammed into a 20-year-old woman and her 23-year-old husband standing on the sidewalk at a bus stop, authorities said. 

The woman was pronounced dead at the scene and the man was taken to the Kings County Hospital Center in stable condition, with a leg injury, cops said. 

The Charger driver abandoned his ride and hopped into one of the other vehicles, a black and silver sedan, cops said.
