As she crossed the street, a 2017 Toyota Rav-4, operated by a 74-year-old man, was making a turn when it struck Hernandez, according to police. He remained at the scene.

The 49-year-old victim was knocked to the ground. Authorities arrived to find her on the roadway with severe head trauma, police said.

She was taken to the hospital where she was pronounced dead two days later, authorities said.
