Police Tuesday said a 65-year-old Pleasanton woman has died from the injuries she sustained over the weekend after being struck in a dangerous crosswalk.
The woman's 72-year-old husband remains hospitalized.
The couple was crossing Santa Rita Road at Francisco Street Saturday evening when they were hit.
Investigators said the driver, a 49-year-old Danville woman, stopped at the scene and is cooperating with police.
People who live in the area said the intersection is dangerous.
"My daughter and our dog were crossing one day and almost got hit by a car," said neighbor Bobby Vaughn.
Vaughn and others said they've complained to the city for months that the flashing lights at the crosswalk were malfunctioning.
"They'd come on and they'd work for maybe a couple of days," Vaughn said. "Then they wouldn't work for a week."
Pleasanton City Attorney Jonathan Lowell said on the day of the accident, the four overhead flashing yellow lights were working properly but that the warning system embedded in the roadway had been removed.
"The embedded lights were removed four days prior to the accident in order to allow for installation of new embedded lights utilizing a hard-wired electrical source," explained Lowell.
He said the hope is the new lights will be more reliable.
Anyone with information about the collision is asked to call police at (925) 391-5100.
Watchdogs are questioning an exclusive agreement between the City of Oakland and a non-profit group, tapped to lead a multi-million dollar project to redevelop the area around the Coliseum BART station.
