Gillian Persaud Hall
A Guyanese woman in Brooklyn was killed crossing an intersection in a hit-and-run accident last Friday night, according to the New York Post.
Gillian Persaud Hall, 56, was crossing Flatlands and Utica Avenue around 9:05 p.m. when she was hit by a car heading east. Hall was rushed to Brookdale Hospital, where she died.
And authorities in Brooklyn, New York, are searching for the driver who ran over a 56-year-old woman and left her to die on the street.
Police Saturday were reviewing video from a closed-circuit camera at a Getty Gas Station at the intersection in hopes of tracing the car.
“This is the most heartless thing to have done to a woman who had such a full, giving heart; to take her away from people that love her,” said Hall’s daughter Neah Persaud, 28, an event planner for a bank. “Please find it in your heart to come forward.”
Gillian Persaud Hall was a former Manager for Guyana National Cooperative Bank (GNCB), Linden for a number of years, and was also the organiser of the Linden Town Day for several years. She was recently honored by the Town of Linden for her contributions to its development over the years.
