BAYSIDE — Firefighters, members of the NYPD’s Emergency Service Unit and medics responded to Bell Boulevard at the corner of 41st Avenue Tuesday morning to assist with a woman injured by a car while crossing the street.

Caitlin Doran, a registered nurse from Long Island Jewish-Health System, said she was around the corner when she heard the woman scream at about 10:25 a.m.

The woman was lying in the street being assisted by several Good Samaritans when Doran walked over and called 911.

After the emergency responders arrived, firefighters and FDNY medics used a backboard to place the woman on a stretcher and brought her to an ambulance, which was en route to the hospital.

Doran said the woman, who had been worried about getting a ticket on her car parked in the municipal lot, did not appear to be seriously injured.
