Maria Tripp, 47, was struck by a black Chevy Impala on Atlantic and Ralph avenues just before 5 p.m., according to police.
Cops said that Tripp was crossing south over Atlantic Avenue when she was hit by the west-bound car.
"They were just crossing the street and the mother got hit,” a witness who did not want to be named told the Daily News. “She went up like 50 feet in the air.”
Tripp had been walking with her 12-year-old daughter and 19-year-old nephew to pick up her granddaughter from daycare when she was struck by the car, the paper said.
