A French fashion stylist who worked with photographer Bruce Weber was fatally hit by a dump truck on Monday in a horrific rush-hour accident on the upper East Side, police said.
Laurence Renard, 35, was crossing First Ave. right outside her building about 5:45 p.m. when a private carting truck turning from 90th St. struck her.
"She was the sweetest, biggest-hearted person I knew," her brother Lionel Renard told the Daily News. "We're all in shock. We're gathering tomorrow in New York."
Lionel Renard said his sister did the styling for a Victoria's Secret campaign last year and had been working with Weber on Abercrombie & Fitch ads.
Renard was married to a restaurateur and split her time between her Manhattan home and Miami, her brother said. She did volunteer work at the Kabbalah Center in midtown, he said.
After the accident, pedestrians raced to block other vehicles from running over Renard's body.
"People were screaming for cars not to go through," said Norizan Ibrahim, 46, a witness.
Renard died at the scene and lay under a white sheet in the roadway as cops investigated the accident Monday night.
The truck driver, Diego Tapia-Ulloa, 23, of Newark was arrested for not having a valid license.
