ENCINITAS, Calif. (KGTV) - A woman died from her injuries after being hit by a driver at an Encinitas intersection Friday.
The 61-year-old victim was walking in a crosswalk at Encinitas Boulevard and Balour Drive just after 6 p.m., San Diego Sheriff's Department (SDSO) said.
SDSO said a vehicle approached the intersection while the woman was crossing and stopped to allow her to pass. A second vehicle then approached the intersection and drove around the first vehicle to continue through the intersection, knocking the woman down.
She was transported to Scripps Memorial Hospital - La Jolla with life-threatening injuries. She later died from those injuries.
The woman's name has not been released.
The driver charged with hitting the woman remained at the scene. SDSO said alcohol does not appear to be a factor.
