Woman struck, killed by SUV in Vista

Wreck on North Melrose, Ascot drives

VISTA, Calif. - A woman fatally struck while crossing Vista street was identified Tuesday as a 65-year-old Oceanside resident.

Wanda Adamov's car came to a stop apparently because of a mechanical problem in the 400 block of North Melrose Drive, north of Ascot Drive, shortly before 8 p.m. Monday, and she was fatally struck after she got out and tried to cross the street mid-block, according to the San Diego County Medical Examiner's Office.

The other driver, who was in a blue 2005 Nissan Xterra, was interviewed at the scene by sheriff's deputies but was not cited in connection with the death, pending an investigation, Deputy Michael Power said.

Adamov was declared dead at Palomar Medical Center, authorities said.
