SAN DIEGO – A 65-year-old woman died after she was struck by a white 2017 Hyundai sedan driven by a 16-year-old boy in the Sierra Mesa area of San Diego.

It happened at 7:10 p.m. Monday while the woman was crossing Ruffin Road at Village Glen Drive with her adult children, San Diego police Officer J. Buttle said.

“They began crossing the north side of the intersection in the crosswalk. The family separated and the adult children made it safely to the east curb,” Buttle said. “The 65-year-old female was struck in the No. 2 lane of northbound Ruffin Road.”

The woman was taken to a hospital where she was pronounced dead, he said.

The crash remained under investigation but drugs or alcohol were not a factor, Buttle said.
