NEW YORK (AP) – Police say an 83-year-old nun was killed and four other people were injured in a Harlem traffic accident caused by a fleeing robbery suspect.
Two pedestrians were critically injured. Sister Mary Celine Graham later died. The Archdiocese of New York says she was a member of the Franciscan Handmaids of Mary.
Authorities said a vehicle ran a red light Tuesday and slammed into a minivan.
Two minivan passengers and another pedestrian suffered minor injuries.
Police were searching for the two people in the other vehicle, who ran away after the accident.
Police say the robbery had occurred near the accident. They pulled over a car with three people, and arrested the driver. 1 of the passengers then slid over to the driver’s side and sped off.
