Critical Condition After Hit-and-Run
The Broadway veteran, 65, was on her way to meet her wife Kathryn Kranhold for a dinner party at a friend’s place near Lincoln Center when she was hit by someone on a red and black scooter or motorcycle “with no plate” at 6:30 p.m., according to The New York Post.
Banes had the right of way when she was run over in a crosswalk at West 64th and Amsterdam Ave. as the driver ran a red light and continued northbound. “There are no arrests and the investigation remains ongoing,” the NYPD DCPI tells PEOPLE.
Banes is still in critical condition with a traumatic brain injury after being admitted at Mount Sinai Morningside hospital. “Lisa is in critical condition and we’ll know more in the next few days,” Kranhold told The Post.
When Banes was late meeting her, Kranhold began to frantically call her wife, to no answer. Someone finally answered the call at the hospital, filling her in on the accident.
