A motorist struck and killed a 60-year-old woman crossing a dicey stretch of Church Avenue on Saturday.

Police say Olga Feldman was attempting to cross Church Avenue near E. Fourth Street at 3:15 pm on Saturday, when she and a 72-year-old companion were struck by a black Cadillac SRX traveling west on Church.

First responders rushed the two victims to Maimonides Hospital, where doctors pronounced Feldman dead, cops said.The driver remained at the scene and was later taken to Maimonides for evaluation, authorities said.

No arrests have been made and the investigation is ongoing.

There have been 13 crashes on the stretch of Church Avenue between Coney Island and McDonald Avenues since 2016, according to Crashmapper. Saturday’s crash is mere blocks away from where two pedestrians were killed by drivers in one week in July — including 47-year-old Maria Del Carmen Porras-Hernandez.

According to HowsmydrivingNY, a Twitter bot that tracks drivers’ violations, the Maryland plates belonging to the Cadillac SRX have been cited three times, including once for speeding in a school zone earlier this year.
