A 64-year-old woman is clinging to life after a motorist mowed her and another pedestrian down as they crossed Fort Hamilton Parkway on Sunday night.

Cops said that the driver collided with the senior and a 38-year-old man near 72nd Street at 7 pm. Both victims were walking against the light, witnesses told police.

Rescue workers transported both victims to Lutheran Medical Center, where the woman was listed in serious condition with trauma to her body. Her male companion suffered light injuries and was listed in stable condition after treatment.

Cops did not charge the driver, who remained at the scene.
