Stage and screen actor Lisa Banes has died at the age of 65, a week after she was struck by a scooter in a hit-and-run incident in New York City.

“We are heartsick of Lisa’s tragic and senseless passing,” a spokesperson for the actor said in a statement. “She was a woman of great spirit, kindness and generosity and dedicated to her work, whether on stage or in front of a camera and even more so to her wife, family and friends.

She was taken to hospital in critical condition, her wife Kathryn Kranhold told The Hollywood Reporter at the time. The New York Police Department also told THR that a pedestrian had been struck by an “unknown scooter or motorcycle.”
