Tucson police have identified the woman who was struck and killed by a car Tuesday night on the north side of town.
34-year-old Eugenia Calnimptewa was transported to Banner University Medical Center with life-threatening injuries shortly before 9:30 p.m., but died at the hospital later, according to a post on the Tucson Police Department's Facebook page.
Police and members of the Tucson Fire Department responded to reports of a vehicle hitting a pedestrian on North Oracle Road, north of East Prince Road, and located Calnimptewa with obvious signs of trauma.
Traffic detectives learned that she was crossing Oracle from east to west, and was not in or near a crosswalk. The driver of a Honda Civic had just turned onto Oracle Road from Prince, and was traveling in the median lane when Calnimptewa was struck. The driver stayed at the scene and cooperated, but no citations were issued, according to the post.
Neither speed nor impairment are believed to be factors in the crash.
