A privately owned CAT vehicle clearing snow out of a parking lot near the Borough Park-Sunset Park border struck and killed a pregnant woman this morning, the New York Post reports.
The plow was removing snow from the parking lot of Fei Long Market at 6301 Eighth Avenue when it hit the 36-year-old woman at approximately 10:44 a.m.
The baby survived the incident, but is in critical condition at Maimonides Medical Center.
The incident is the second death caused by a privately operated snow plow in Southern Brooklyn in the last week and a half. On February 3, a man was killed by a CAT vehicle removing snow from the Oceana condominium complex in Brighton Beach.
