An 82-year-old woman was killed Friday morning after being hit by an SUV in Brooklyn.

Police say the unidentified woman was crossing Gravesend Neck Road near East 16th Street in Sheepshead Bay when the SUV traveling eastbound struck her.

She was taken to Coney Island Hospital where she was pronounced dead.

Residents say it's an isolated, but tragic event.

"Crazy drivers, people trying to get to school trying to get the kids to school and all that so...it is what it is," said one resident.

Police say the driver remained on the scene.

No charges have been filed.
