Detectives were able to determine that Quero was in a crosswalk and was crossing southbound on the west side of the intersection.
A 2002 yellow Crown Victoria Taxi Cab was traveling westbound on Irvington and had entered the intersection on a green light when the collision happened.
Police say speed does not appear to be a factor in the collision but the driver showed signs and symptoms of impairment. As a result, a DUI investigation was conducted.
No charges have been filed at this time, according to police. The investigation is ongoing at this time.
