PALMDALE – A woman died Wednesday night after she was hit by a car while crossing the street in Palmdale, authorities said.
The female pedestrian was pronounced dead at the hospital less than an hour after the collision, which occurred around 8 p.m. Wednesday, July 6, on Palmdale Boulevard, east of 5th Street West, according to a news release from the Palmdale Sheriff’s Station.
“The preliminary facts of this investigation indicate a blue 1967 Chevy Nova, driven by a 62-year-old male, was traveling westbound on Palmdale Boulevard in the No. 1 lane and struck a… female pedestrian, who was crossing the roadway from the south side of Palmdale Boulevard to the north side,” the news release states.
The pedestrian was crossing mid-block, outside of a crosswalk, when she was hit, according to a deputy at the scene.
The pedestrian was treated at the scene by Los Angeles County Fire Department paramedics and then transferred to Antelope Valley Hospital, where she was pronounced dead at 8:46 p.m., according to the sheriff’s news release.
Her name is being withheld pending next of kin notification, but she was a Hispanic female in her 40s, coroner’s Assistant Chief Ed Winter said Thursday morning.
The Chevy Nova’s driver remained at the scene and was not injured in the collision, sheriff’s officials said.
Intoxication does not appear to be a factor in this collision, deputies at the scene said.
