A woman who works for Amazon was struck and killed by a car operated by an unlicensed driver as she crossed a street in front of the company’s Staten Island warehouse late Saturday night, police said.

The 24-year-old was attempting to cross 5th Street across from the Amazon Fulfillment Center around 11:30 p.m. when she was hit by a Honda Accord that was traveling west, cops said. 

The victim suffered head and body trauma and was rushed to Richmond University Medical Center but couldn’t be saved, cops said.
