Cops: Coram Woman Injured in Crash Dies

A 56-year-old Coram woman died Friday from serious injuries she sustained four days prior when she was struck by a vehicle in her hometown, Suffolk County police said.

Susan Restrepo had been listed in critical condition at Stony Brook University Hospital since Monday evening, when she was struck by a 1994 Jeep that had swerved to avoid a collision with another vehicle, police said.

The 28-year-old driver of the Jeep was heading west on Middle Country Road when a vehicle with disabled headlights crossed Middle Country Road in front of the Jeep, causing the driver to swerve, police said.

Coram Fire Department responded and transported Restrepo to Stony Brook University Hospital after the 8:21 p.m. crash, police said. The person behind the wheel of the Jeep was not injured, police said.

The Jeep was impounded for a safety check, police said.

A police spokeswoman said the investigation is ongoing.

Detectives ask anyone with information about the crash to call the Sixth Squad at 631-854-8652.
