CBS 2 NY reporter Nina Kapur dies after crash on Revel scooter in Brooklyn

CBS 2 NY reporter Nina Kapur died after she got into a crash on a Revel scooter in Brooklyn, authorities said Monday.

Kapur was riding as a passenger on the Revel scooter north on Franklin St. in Greenpoint about 5:30 p.m. Saturday when the 26-year-old man driving the scooter north suddenly swerved near India St.

Kapur, of Newton, Penn., was thrown to the roadway. She was seriously injured and died later at Bellevue Hospital.

The operator of the Revel suffered minor injuries. It was not immediately clear why he swerved.

“We are heartbroken here at CBS2 as a member of our news family has passed away,” the station said in a statement. “Our thoughts and prayers are with Nina’s family. She will be missed.”

Kapur joined CBS in June 2019 after a stint at News 12. She attended Syracuse University.

Jane Hong, who went to Syracuse with Kapur, described her on Twitter as “excellent at what she did while wearing a big smile on her face.”

Added anchor Nydia Han, who met the victim when Kapur was an intern at 6 ABC in Philadelphia, “I had the honor and pleasure of working with her. She was a compassionate, smart, and beautiful bright light. Especially heartbroken and devastated for her family.”
