A woman died after sustaining major injuries when a Jeep hit her as she was in the crosswalk of Mira Mesa Boulevard, San Diego Police said Wednesday.

A 50-year-old woman entered the crosswalk at Aderman Avenue and Mira Mesa Boulevard on Tuesday around 3 p.m. in the Mira Mesa neighborhood, and was hit by a Jeep Wrangler driven by a 45-year-old man tuning onto the street, police reported.
