Lisa Banes dead – Gone Girl star dies aged 65 after hit-and-run scooter crash NYC left her with ‘traumatic brain injury’
GONE Girl actress Lisa Banes has died after suffering a “traumatic brain injury” following a hit-and-run accident in New York City.
The 65-year-old star was “flung from a crosswalk” while crossing the street in Manhattan when she was struck by a motorized scooter on June 4.
Her representative told ET on Monday: “We’re are heartsick over Lisa’s tragic and senseless passing.
“She was a woman of great spirit, kindness, and generosity and dedicated to her work, whether on stage or in front of a camera and even more so to her wife, family and friends.
“We were blessed to have had her in our lives.”
The Gone Girl actress was in a critical condition with a “traumatic brain injury” following the accident.
Lisa was on her way to meet her wife, Kathryn Kranhold, for a dinner party near the Lincoln Center when a red and black scooter hit her while “blowing through” a red light, according to Deadline.
The driver then allegedly fled the scene – which took place at the crosswalk on West 64th and Amsterdam Avenue.
Cops confirmed no arrests have been made.
The TV and film star lives in Los Angeles but was visiting New York City for the first time since the pandemic.
Seth McFarlane, the creator of Family Guy and The Orville, paid tribute to the actress.
He tweeted: “I am deeply saddened at the news of Lisa Banes’ passing. We had the good fortune to work with her on The Orville this past year.
“Her stage presence, magnetism, skill, and talent were matched only by her unwavering kindness and graciousness toward all of us.”
Lisa’s movie and television career spanned many decades.
Her first acting credit was playing the mom in 1984’s The Hotel New Hampshire starring Rob Lowe and Jodie Foster.
In the years since, her career has stayed active with roles on major TV shows such as Nashville, Masters Of Sex, Royal Pains and The Orville.
