The woman struck on Nostrand Avenue and Avenue Z on Thursday is in critical condition. The driver – an ex-con with convictions for drugs and driving without a license – is awaiting arraignment for charges of vehicular assault, drunken driving, and reckless driving.
From the Daily News:
A drunken ex-con three times over the legal limit mowed down a Brooklyn woman walking home from work – leaving her with horrendous injuries, sources said Friday.
Olga Skibina, 22, was headed to her Gerritsen Beach home when a wasted Zachary Kitt barreled his 1997 Ford van into her Thursday evening, police said.
She was in critical condition at Lutheran Medical Center Friday with severe brain, facial and lung injuries.
“We’re hoping it’s not going to get any worse,” said the victim’s stepfather, Alex Litvachkis, 44.
