ITHACA, N.Y. – A woman was struck by a car and killed last week near her home in Enfield.

At about 12:04 p.m. Friday, Carmen Jacks, 82, of Enfield, was crossing the street in front her driveway on the 400 block of Hayts Road when she was struck by a car traveling east, according to Trooper Aga Dembinska, public information officer for New York State Police Troop C .

Jacks was struck by Amedeo Fraboni Jr., 80, of Watkins Glen, who was operating a 2004 Nissan Maxima. He had one passenger in the car.

Jacks was initially going to be transported by helicopter, but ended up transported by Bangs Ambulance to Cayuga Medical Center, where she succumbed to her injuries, Dembinska said.

Fraboni stopped after the crash and was interviewed by police. At this point, Dembinska said the crash appears to be “pedestrian error” as the car technically had the right of way. Fraboni has not been ticketed.
