Santa Clara Police are looking for witnesses after a driver hit and killed a pedestrian crossing Kiely Boulevard between Barcells Avenue and Steinhart Court around 3 p.m. on Nov. 30.
Officers say 84-year-old Thi Lan was crossing the street outside of the crosswalk when she was hit and killed by a Dodge Charger going south on Kiely. The driver was a 20-year-old woman who stayed on the scene and cooperated with investigators.
There is no word on why Lan was crossing the street, though officers believe she lived in the neighborhood with family members. There is a bus stop located less than a block from where Lan crossed.
The investigation is ongoing but officers say initial reports indicate the driver of the car was not at fault and visibility did not appear to be an issue.
Police are asking anyone who witnessed the incident to contact Traffic Investigator Nick Cusimano at (408) 615-4764.
