The entrance to Matrix Global Logistics Park, home to Amazon warehouses, is at Fifth Street and Gulf Avenue on Staten Island.
A teenage driver hit and killed an Amazon employee on Saturday night, Nov. 20, near the warehouses of the e-tail giant on Staten Island, according to police.
The 24-year-old woman was attempting to walk on Fifth Street near Gulf Avenue at 11:37 PM on Nov. 20 when a driver traveling west on Fifth Street in a Honda Accord hit her.
Paramedics took the victim with head and body injuries to Richmond University Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead.
Police are withholding her identity until her family is notified of her death, but an NYPD spokesperson confirmed she worked for Amazon.
The 19-year-old driver remained at the scene and the police have not yet charged her with any crime.
The intersection is the entrance to the Matrix Global Logistics Park, home Amazon and Swedish furniture supplier Ikea.
