PHOENIX — A woman crossing a street was struck by a car and killed early Friday morning on the city’s west side.
Phoenix Police took the driver, who fled the scene, into custody a short while later.
A police spokesman said the car’s driver hit the woman near McDowell Road and 52nd Avenue, after maneuvering around a car that had stopped to allow the woman to pass. She was not in a crosswalk.
The woman was pronounced dead at a hospital.
