Authorities Monday released the name of a 78-year-old woman who was fatally struck by a car driven by a teenager in North Park.
Pauline Tompkins of San Diego was crossing University Avenue mid-block near 32nd Street when an eastbound Ford Focus driven by a 17-year-old girl hit her about 8:45 p.m. Saturday, according to police and the county Medical Examiner’s Office.
Tompkins died at the scene.
Intoxication was not a factor in the fatality, SDPD Officer Robert Heims said.
