Elderly Woman Hit, Killed Crossing Kiely Boulevard

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.
