Peekskill Mayor Frank Catalina released the following statement Sunday regarding the accident that killed an elderly woman and seriously injured three others Saturday at the intersection of Hudson Avenue and Washington Street.

Peekskill Chief of Police Eric Johansen told The Peekskill Post Sunday morning that the name of the victim and possibly the driver will be released Monday.

One dead, three hospitalized after horrific accident Saturday in Peekskill

Catalina’s statement reads as follows:

I just returned from the Westchester Medical Center after visiting the injured parties from yesterday’s horrific accident. At the moment, the names continue to be confidential, at the family’s request. However, I would ask all residents of the Peekskill Community to take a moment out of their day and night to pray for this humble family, who I’m sure many of you will know when identified.

The man remains in critical condition and a three-year-old baby in very critical condition. I will be privately reaching out to a community activist to start a GoFundMe page to assist them in funeral and recovery expenses. We all have lived through tragedy in our lives—I know I have—and can attest to the power of prayer and goodwill.

Our community always comes together in times like these and we will again. There will be time for mourning, fundraising and getting answers to questions, but right now it’s time for prayers for this fine, hard-working family.

Thank you all and look for a GoFundMe page soon.  

As well, I have met with Chief Johansen and have ordered a full investigation of not only this accident, but the intersection in general. Next week, the city engineer will also be instructed to prepare a full report on this intersection. The city will take whatever remedial measures the experts feel are necessary, I can promise you that.
