NNC -> "...crossing the street".

Both are fine, but have slightly different meaning. The current sentence implies you saw the old woman complete the whole crossing, but the past continuous only says that you saw here while she was in the process of crossing the street.
The Japanese seems to use the simple present.

Tnx.
I guess I have not been exposed to a good number of such sentences to notice this language phenomenon.
So, in this sentence word "cross" is in bare infinitive form with Past Tense meaning.
