NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

A woman crossing W. 95th St. and West End Ave. on Manhattan’s Upper West Side was struck and killed by a driver. The deadly incident was caught on camera.

Jean Chambers, 61, was rushed to St. Luke’s Roosevelt Hospital where she was pronounced dead on Thursday.

She had been dragged for a distance after being struck while in the cross-walk at about 11 a.m.

The 50-year-old male driver of the 2004 Ford Expedition was traveling eastbound when he made a left turn onto West End Ave. and struck Chambers, said police.

The driver remained on the scene and had not been charged in the deadly incident. A police investigation was ongoing.

Chambers was reportedly struck three blocks from her home and died two blocks from where a nine-year-old boy was struck and killed by a taxi in January.

Four pedestrians have been killed in the same area.

Mayor Bill de Blasio implemented a campaign to end roadway deaths shortly after taking office in January . The Vision Zero initiative was bolstered by the boy’s death.

De Blasio was asked on Thursday if the plan was aggressive enough.

“This is a very, very aggressive plan. We are moving it intensely. What will we do as a result of this incident is look at this particular intersection again and see if there are additional changes we can make there,’ said De Blasio.

    New York Fashion Week: weird and wonderful

    Modern dancers, writhing half-naked in front of giant weather-themed video installations. Miley Cyrus, not twerking, but working — in a new gig making jewelry with children's beads. A guy mowing a fake indoor lawn in a suit, top hat and fishnet tights. We didn't need to tell you that Fashion Week isn't only about hemlines and tailoring, did we? Some weird or wonderful (and sometimes both) moments of New York Fashion Week...
