A 67-year-old New York City grandmother has died after being hit by a vehicle that was trying to flee police, reports say. 

Lynn Christopher was walking with her 8-year-old grandson around 7 p.m. on Saturday when she was fatally struck in Brooklyn’s Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood, according to media reports. 

"They just drove off and they left them in the street like they were garbage. Who does that?" daughter Lesley Christopher told CBS NY. "To good people who are just going about their day and just trying to live their life? I don't understand." 

Christopher added that "it's the most devastating thing in the world to see your mom and your nephew hurt and you can't go to them, to at least just be there with her."
