Ramapo police today identified Teresa Estrada-Geranis as the woman who was struck and killed by a vehicle on Wednesday.

Estrada-Geranis, 73, was volunteering with the Ramapo Senior Activity Center's Meals on Wheels program at 484 New Hempstead Road before the crash occurred, Meals on Wheels officials said.

The center is located on the property of the New Hempstead Presbyterian Church, at the border of the village of New Hempstead. Estrada-Geranis, a New Hempstead resident, was hit by a vehicle in the parking lot as she left the senior center shortly before 2:30 p.m., police said.

The driver stayed on the scene, and the crash is under investigation. Police would not comment further this morning.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with the victim's family," Meals on Wheels President and CEO Julia Schwartz-Leeper said in a statement. "We all are deeply heartbroken by this terrible accident. The safety and well-being of our participants and staff is first and foremost. We are providing counseling opportunities to all participants and staff at the center."
