THROGS NECK, the Bronx — A woman was struck and killed by a vehicle in the Bronx Monday afternoon, police said.

Just after 7 p.m., police responded to a call of a motor vehicle collision involving a pedestrian at the vicinity of Sampson and East Tremont avenues.

Officers arrived to find a 59-year-old woman unconscious and unresponsive with trauma to her head, police said.

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

Her identity has not been released, pending family notification.

Investigation revealed a 2009 Mazda 3 sedan was traveling south on East Tremont Avenue when it struck the pedestrian while she was crossing Sampson Avenue, according to police.

The driver of the vehicle remained at the scene.

No arrests have been made.

Less than 24 hours later, a 10-year-old girl was fatally struck by a school bus in East New York, Brooklyn.

They are now the 19th and 20th pedestrians to die this year on New York City streets, according to authorities.
