NEW YORK - Police have arrested a man in connection with the hit-and-run accident that killed "Gone Girl" and "Cocktail" actress Lisa Bane. She died 10 days after being injured in a hit-and-run accident in New York City.
Banes, 65, was attempting to cross Amsterdam Avenue at West 64th Street when a person riding either a scooter hit her, knocking her to the ground. She died 10 days later at Mount Sinai Morningside Hospital.
Banes appeared in several movies, including "Cocktail" with Tom Cruise in 1988 and "Gone Girl" in 2014, where she played Marybeth Elliott — the mother of Rosamund Pike’s character Amy Elliott. On television, she had roles on "Nashville," "Madam Secretary," "Masters of Sex" and "NCIS."
She also appeared on Broadway several times, including in "Present Laughter" and "High Society."
Banes, who lived in Los Angeles, was hit on the way to visit the Juilliard School, her alma mater, according to her manager David Williams.
Boyd is charged with leaving the scene of an accident resulting in death and failure to yield to a pedestrian.
The last 12 months have been the most deadly for pedestrians in New York City for years, as traffic incidents in the city have killed more people over the last 12 months than during any 12-month period in the last seven years.
