Graham, an elderly Catholic nun, was one of three pedestrians struck by a minivan that had been stopped by NYPD after a gunpoint robbery. The driver had been taken into custody, but another suspect grabbed the wheel and took off through the streets of Morningside Heights, with police in pursuit. Witnesses described the chase much differently than the officials.
