Brooklyn real estate agent Patricia Lancaster died in a car crash over the weekend while driving home from work.

Lancaster, 63, was hit by a gray Nissan Maxima at East 56th Street and Avenue J in East Flatbush, according to the New York Daily News. The driver remained on the scene, and police are investigating whether any criminality was involved.

She worked at Fillmore Real Estate as an agent for seven years and had “for sale” signs in her backseat at the time of the fatal wreck, according to Bklyner. Her coworkers described her as a happy employee who loved to dance.

“She was so generous and pleasant,” broker Alex Cheri said to Bklyner. “She was so happy to be working here for the few hours she could spend.” [NYDN, Bklyner] – Eddie Small
