According to a Journal News report of December 3, 2009, Anna B. Werner, a 57 year-old Connecticut resident, was struck by a vehicle while crossing the street by the Purdy’s, NY train station. The accident occurred at approximately 5:45 pm Tuesday after she came home from work. She was reportedly struck by a westbound 2002 Ford Explorer driven by Gabe Hohner of Mahopac. No charges are to be filed against Mr. Hohner.
Tragically, Ms. Werner died from her injuries after being transported to Danbury Hospital by emergency personnel.
The pedestrian accident reportedly occurred in a dark area along Route 116 where many commuters park. Investigator, Michael Davis, is quoted as saying, “It was dark in that location. The nearest street lamp was about 200 feet away.”
