ONEONTA - After two weeks of fighting for her life, a 32-year-old Oneonta woman who was hit by a car has died.
April Johnson was crossing James F. Lettis Highway on December 30th when she was struck by a car driven by David Shafer of Otego.
Oneonta Police say Shafer was not impaired at the time of the crash, but he was driving without a license. Johnson was walking with a friend around 7:45 p.m. in a dimly lit area that is not marked for pedestrians when she was hit.
Shafer has been charged with aggravated unlicensed operation of a vehicle. His license had previously been suspended for an unrelated violation.
Oneonta Police are calling Johnson’s death an accident, and say the charges will not change.
