Friends of Banes told the New York Post that the actress died on Monday.

Confirming Banes’ death, a rep told Entertainment Tonight: ‘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,’ they added.

A New York Police Department spokesperson also told Metro.co.uk that no arrests have been made. 

Reacting to the news, Banes’ friend and singer Jill Sobule shared photos of them together and tweeted: ‘Just busted. Lisa Banes was magnificent, hilarious, and big-hearted – always helped me though the hard times. She was so beloved by so many.’ 

It was previously reported that Banes was on her way to meet her wife Kathryn Kranhol and was crossing the road when she was struck by a scooter. The driver of the scooter fled the scene and is currently being searched for by police.

Kranhol said Banes was in a critical condition in Mount Sinai Morningside hospital with a traumatic brain injury.

She said in a statement (via New York Daily News): ‘We have several days ahead of us to pray for Lisa.

‘If anyone has any information about the scooter driver, we ask them to please call police.’

The NYPD also said in a statement: ‘On Friday, June 4, 2021 at approximately 1833 hours, police responded to a 911 call of a motor vehicle collision involving a pedestrian struck at the intersection of West 64 Street and Amsterdam Avenue, within the confines of the 20 Precinct.

‘Upon arrival, officers observed a 65-year-old female pedestrian lying on the roadway with severe head trauma. EMS responded to the location and transported the aided female to Mount Sinai Saint Luke’s Hospital, where she remains in critical condition.

‘Further investigation by the NYPD Highway District’s Collision Investigation Squad determined the pedestrian was attempting to cross Amsterdam Avenue, from west to east inside the north crosswalk at West 64 Street, with the pedestrian signal in her favor, when a scooter- traveling north on Amsterdam Avenue- did pass the red traffic signal and strike the pedestrian, knocking her to the roadway.’ 

They added: ‘The scooter then fled the location, continuing north bound. There are no arrests and the investigation remains ongoing.’ 

Banes was best known for starring in 2014’s Gone Girl alongside Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike, playing Marybeth Elliott. 

She’s also had memorable TV appearances in the likes of Nashville, The Orville, and has appeared in Masters of Sex and Royal Pains.
