(Elderly woman struck by a vehicle)….The woman suffered fatal injuries.
Deputy County Coroner Rodolfo Barron says the woman may have been a transient. Officials say she was using a walker Friday night as she walked in the northbound lane of South 8th Street in El Centro, near Horne Road. A North bound vehicle apparently did not see the woman and collided with her. She was transported to El Centro Regional Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead. Barron says the woman was between 60 and 80 years of age. He said she has a dark complexion. He said she was Hispanic or Native American. She was 5 feet five inches tall and weighed around 120. The Deputy Coroner said her hair was completely white.
