Police are trying to locate the driver of a car that struck and killed a woman in her late 40s in a hit-and-run collision in San Jose early Tuesday morning, police said.
The incident was reported shortly after 1 a.m. at the intersection of Monterey Road and Bellevue Avenue.
Officers determined that a vehicle had struck the woman while she was crossing Monterey Road. The driver fled before police arrived.
She was found in a southbound lane on Monterey Road, San Jose police Officer Albert Morales said.
The victim was transported to a hospital with life-threatening injuries. She succumbed to her injuries at 1:50 a.m., police said.
A preliminary investigation indicated that the woman was walking east when a dark-colored Honda sedan similar to a 1996- to 2000-model Honda Civic struck her, police said. The car did not stop and continued south on Monterey Road.
Police said the vehicle is believed to have a detached driver's side mirror and that the front driver's side headlight is likely broken and the front windshield damaged.
As of early this afternoon, neither the driver nor the car had been located, according to Morales.
The victim's identity is being withheld until her family is notified of her death, according to the Santa Clara County medical examiner's office.
Anyone with information about the case is asked to call San Jose police at (408) 277-4654 or anonymously at (408) 947-7867, or online at tipsubmit.com, and may be eligible for an award.
