A San Bernardino woman died after being struck by a car while attempting to use a crosswalk.
San Bernardino officers responded to reports of a vehicle-pedestrian traffic collision at Baseline and Arrowhead Avenue at around 6 a.m. Local authorities pulled up to find a woman lying still in the street, suffering from obvious and devastating head injuries.
The woman was hit by a red Honda CRV and was quickly brought to St. Bernadine’s Medical Center where she later died.
The driver stayed at the scene and cooperated with officers, a press release from police officials said. The woman was crossing the street and was hit in the middle of the street, witnesses reported.
The woman’s name has not been realized due to pending notification of her family.
San Bernardino Police Department are leading the investigation which is still ongoing.

Anyone can tell you that suing someone is no quick and simple task; this is when hiring a legal professional would be worth the cost.
