An elderly woman was struck and killed Sunday while crossing a street near Target on the Cerritos-Lakewood border.
The accident was reported on Del Amo Boulevard, near Bloomfield Avenue, about 5:45 p.m. Dec. 23, according to Lakewood Sheriff's Station Sgt. Daniel Vizcarra.
Alcohol or drug impairment do not seem to be a factor in the crash, the sergeant told Patch.
"It was just a complete accident," added Lt. Alicia Malone of the Lakewood Sheriff's Station.
The woman walked in the crosswalk in front of a car that had the green light, whose driver did not see her. The woman was struck and was pronounced dead at the scene from her injuries, the lieutenant said.
The driver of the car stopped at the scene, Malone said. A witness at the scene described the car as a Ford Crown Victoria.
There were two buses at the curb on the other side of the street, so the woman may have been trying to get to one of them when she was struck, Malone said.
The field investigation was completed but the case is not yet closed, she said.
The victim's identity was withheld pending notification of next of kin.
Southbound traffic on Bloomfield Avenue was blocked off for more than two hours as traffic investigators completed their investigation.
