The force from that crash caused the Malibu to strike the woman as she crossed the Grand Concourse at 175th Street.

The driver, identified as David Fennell, is facing charges of assault, reckless endangerment and reckless driving.

The Department of Transportation has been handling an ongoing project to increase safety for pedestrians and drivers in the area of the crash.
