The veteran actor Lisa Banes, known for her performances in Gone Girl and Cocktail, is in serious condition after a hit-and-run scooter accident in New York City on 4th June.
The incident took place at West 64 St. and Amsterdam Ave near Lincoln Center around 6:30 p.m. on Friday, and she was admitted to Mount Sinai Saint Luke’s Hospital.
The NYPD said in a statement to Variety, “Upon arrival, officers observed a 65-year-old female pedestrian lying on the roadway with severe head trauma. EMS responded to the location and transported the aided female to Mount Sinai Saint Luke’s Hospital, where she remains in critical condition.”
