71-year-old woman killed after being struck by a vehicle in Westminster

A 71-year-old woman was killed after being struck by a vehicle in Westminster, police said Saturday. The crash happened at 8:22 a.m. Friday at the intersection of Bolsa Avenue and Magnolia Street. When first responders arrived the woman, identified as Hoa Thi Duong, was alert and able to speak to medics, according to a news release by Westminster Police Cmdr. Cameron Knauerhaze. The woman was taken to UCI hospital in serious condition. The driver stayed at the scene and cooperated with police, Knauerhaze said. Duong died on Friday night. “Based on the scene and witnesses, we believe some sort of right of way violation occurred at the crosswalk,” Knauerhaze said in the statement. “Both vehicles and pedestrians have a duty to look out for each other and watch the traffic lights for direction.” No arrest was made.
