The woman was rushed by paramedics to nearby Maimonides Medical Center where her nearly full term, 6-pound, 6-ounce baby was delivered, said hospital spokeswoman Eileen Tynion.

The baby was in critical condition in the neonatal intensive care unit, Tynion said, and a family member was present with him but has declined to talk to the media. The woman was pronounced dead at the hospital, police said. No telephone number was listed at the address for Lin provided by authorities.

The driver of the vehicle, a 42-year-old man, remained at the scene after Lin was struck and hasn't been charged in what appears to have been an accident, police said. The man was clearing the parking lot of snow, police said. About 9.5 inches had fallen on the city by Thursday morning.

A woman who answered the Fei Long Shopping Center's phone declined to comment.
