SLEEPY HOLLOW, N.Y. (AP) - The family of a woman critically injured in a crash while being transported in an ambulance says she’s been taken off life support.

Janet Hickey was declared brain dead after last Wednesday’s accident.

The Journal News (https://nydn.us/1A7WHWe ) says her family has decided to donate her organs.

The Bronx resident suffered multiple head and neck injuries when the ambulance crashed head-on into a utility pole on Route 9 in Sleepy Hollow.

The SeniorCare Emergency Services ambulance was making a non-emergency trip from a New York City hospital to Phelps Memorial Hospital in Sleepy Hollow. Hickey was scheduled for rehab there after brain surgery.



Hickey was a longtime resident of City Island where she worked at Artie’s Steak & Seafood.

The crash is under investigation.

The ambulance driver suffered minor injuries.
