Estelle Davis Dies From Injuries After Being Struck by Backhoe

A pedestrian was crushed to death in a terrible accident in Brooklyn on Friday, March 5, 2021. 61-year-old Estelle Davis was struck by a backhoe (a large construction vehicle) when it backed into her and its shovel knocked her to the ground. Shocking video of the incident shows the backhoe continuing to reverse, with the driver seemingly unaware that he has struck a pedestrian. Davis was dragged under the vehicle to the corner of New Lots and Van Sinderen Avenues in East New York, where she was left unconscious when the backhoe drove away.
