Chanie Walfish, 57, was leaving Ivy Palace Day Spa and Nails at 424 Saddle River Road about 7:10 p.m. when a Ford van hopped the curb and struck her, police said.
The Ramapo Valley Ambulance Corps rushed Walfish to Good Samaritan Hospital in Suffern, where she was later r”l pronounced dead.
“She was in traumatic arrest,” said Raymond Florida, executive director of Rockland Paramedic Services, which also responded to the crash. “When medics arrived, she had no pulse. They were unsuccessful at resuscitating her.”
Ramapo Police Sgt. Robert Lancia said Walfish had to be removed from beneath the van when responders arrived, but that she was not pinned.
“She was beneath the van,” Lancia said, adding that it took about five responders to move the vehicle. “We put the van in neutral and pushed it off of her.”
The driver of the van, Gum Ju Sim, 43, of Flushing, N.Y. was uninjured in the crash.
Ju Sim had not been ticketed.
Ramapo police, Ramapo Valley Ambulance Corps and Rockland Paramedic Services were assisted at the scene by the Monsey Fire Department and Hatzolah Ambulance Corps, Misaskim and Chesed Shell Emes on the scene.
