A 75-year-old woman struck and killed a Marine Park resident yesterday afternoon when she lost control of her van and slammed into a McDonald’s.

The victim, 64-year-old Phyllis Pitt of Ryder Street, was walking on Flatbush Avenue and East 48th Street when the woman behind the wheel accidentally backed up onto the curb and hit Pitt, pinning her against the wall.

The driver stayed on scene to help, according to NBC New York, but little could be done. Pitt was pronounced dead at Beth Israel Hospital.
