A 76-year-old Brooklyn woman who survived the Auschwitz concentration camp died late Friday after being hit by a car near her home, police said. The driver fled in the car.

The woman, Rifka Franzos, was trying to cross Wythe Avenue at Rodney Street in Williamsburg shortly after 9:30 p.m. on Friday, when a red car traveling north on Wythe hit her, said Officer Dennis Laffin, a Police Department spokesman. An investigator who spoke on condition of anonymity said witnesses described the car as a Ford Thunderbird, though they could not see the driver as the car passed.Franzos, who was born in Hungary and emigrated to Brooklyn in 1947, later died at Woodhull Medical and Mental Health Center, Laffin said.
