PHOENIX — A woman is dead after she was struck by an SUV in a hit-and-run crash Monday night near a Phoenix intersection.

Officers responded to hit and run collision around 9:30 p.m. near Indian School Road and 75th Avenue.

When officers arrived at the scene, they found the woman with critical injuries, Phoenix police said.

Detectives learned the woman was crossing 75th Avenue outside the crosswalk when she was hit.  The SUV was driving north on 75th Avenue from Indiana School Road before the crash happened.

Authorities said the teen was evaluated for intoxication but showed no signs.
