Nyack, New York. 40-year-old Katrina Grigsby was a single mom living in Nyack along with her son, and those closest to her say she had a heart of gold.
Katrina was kind, compassionate, bubbly, and a ray of sunshine to everyone who met her. Katrina’s son Khasyi was her best friend, and he was also the biggest priority in her life.
On September 4th, Katrina was walking along Rt 9W in the southbound lane when she was hit and run over by 2 different cars that then drove away.
Someone driving in the opposite direction ended up seeing Katrina lying in the road, and they stopped to try to help her.
