Pedestrian struck and killed by car in Norwalk

Approximate location of incident shown in red.

A woman was struck and killed by a car this week in Norwalk when she allegedly walked into traffic, authorities said.

Los Angeles Sheriff's Department Lt. Bill Evans said the 67-year-old woman was not in a crosswalk and was attempting to cross Studebaker Road just south of Firestone Boulevard about 7:50 p.m. Monday when she was struck "by at least one vehicle, which was going northbound on Studebaker."

The woman, who was identified only as a Norwalk resident, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Evans said Tuesday that no one had been arrested or cited in the fatal collision and that it appeared investigators have initially put her at fault for allegedly crossing the street outside of a pedestrian crosswalk.
