Chelsea Now | An elderly woman was crushed to death Monday morning after being hit by a large flat-bed truck at what has long been considered by community activists as one of Chelsea’s most dangerous corners.

Amelia Chimienti, 82, of 335 West 14th St., was killed instantly just after 11 a.m., as she made her way south across 16th St. on the east side of Ninth Ave., police said. Chimienti was pronounced dead at the scene, which was just across the street from Chelsea Market.
