A woman was killed Thursday evening after being struck by a car in the Lemon Creek area, said a police spokesperson.
Gloria Rembulat Endozo, 82, was struck by a sports utility vehicle driven by a 49-year-old man, who police did not identify, while crossing the street near the old Walmart just before 8 p.m. said Juneau Police Department Lt. Krag Campbell in a news release.
Endozo, who had just gotten off a bus, was walking toward her home in Switzer Village when she was struck by the driver, who was headed north, according to police. The driver immediately stopped to check on her while asking a witness to call emergency services. Endozo was transported to Bartlett Regional Hospital with critical injuries by Capital City Fire/Rescue personnel. She was pronounced dead at the hospital, according to police.
The driver showed no signs of impairment, Campbell said, and no charges are being issued at this time. Endozo was wearing dark clothing and crossing in a dimly lit area outside of a crosswalk, Campbell said. Edonzo’s next of kin have been notified.
