AceShowbiz - "Gone Girl" actress Lisa Banes has died after being hit by a scooter in a hit-and-run accident.

The 65-year-old star, best known for playing Marybeth Elliott in the 2014 movie, was crossing a road on her way to meet wife Kathryn Kranhold for a dinner party in New York on 4 June (21) when a driver on a motorised scooter ran a red light and collided with her, sending her flying across the road.

She was rushed to hospital, but suffered a traumatic brain injury in the accident and was unable to recover.

She died on 14 June, according to the New York Post. Her representative confirmed her passing in a statement to Entertainment Tonight, which read, "We are heartsick over Lisa's tragic and senseless passing. She was a woman of great spirit, kindness and generosity and dedicated to her work, whether on stage or in front of a camera and even more so to her wife, family and friends. We were blessed to have had her in our lives."

Investigations into the hit-and-run are ongoing, with a spokesperson for the New York Police Department revealing they have yet to track down the driver of the black and red scooter, or make any arrests.

Broadway and screen veteran Lisa Banes previously appeared alongside Tom Cruise in "Cocktail" and Western movie "Young Guns" while her other credits include appearances on TV shows "Nashville", "The Orville", and "Masters of Sex".
