A car struck and killed a woman Tuesday on a La Jolla street.
The accident in the 7700 block of Girard Avenue occurred shortly before noon, according to San Diego police.
The victim was unloading her car when she was struck by an elderly driver who was backing out of a parking space on the opposite side of the street, San Diego police told NBC 7. The driver crossed the street and rammed into the woman, pinning the victim between her car and the driver’s, according to the station.
Medics took the victim to Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla, where she was pronounced dead about 12:45 p.m., said SDPD public-affairs Officer Humberto Hernandez.
Her name was withheld pending family notification.
