A family is mourning as police search for two drivers after a 79-year-old woman was hit by two different vehicles on Thursday night. Authorities say the crash happened around 6:30 p.m. at New York Avenue and Herkimer Street in Crown Heights. On Friday, family members identified the victim as Yvonne Sandiford. A grey Nissan Rogue hit Sandiford while she was crossing the street and dragged her down the road. Then a second car, a white Toyota Sienna, hit her as she laid on the road. Neither stopped to check on her and both drivers took off.
