Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Nydailynews.com: “Woman arrested for Brooklyn hit and run dies of brain tumor”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

The hit-and-run driver who sent a 14-year-old Brooklyn girl flying into traffic has died of a brain tumor that may have affected her behavior, according to her friends.

Final farewells for Julia Litmanovich, 49, were held Friday at the English Bros. Funeral home in Sheepshead Bay.

Doctors at Staten Island University North diagnosed Litmanovich with a brain tumor and water on the brain the day after she was released from court on April 11 for striking teenage Xin Yi Wang.

She was caught on security video running a red light on March 27. The teen, who was in the crosswalk, miraculously escaped with only minor injuries when the Staten Island woman rammed into her, sending her into traffic near the corner of 47th St. and Ninth Ave. in Borough Park.

Friends believe Litmanovich’s bizarre behavior the day of the accident and during her two weeks on the lam were a byproduct of the brain tumor.
