MILWAUKEE---An elderly woman has died after she was struck by a vehicle while crossing the street Wednesday night.

It happened around 5:30 p.m. in the 9100 block of W. Beloit Rd.

The 89-year-old woman was transported to a local hospital in critical condition after a 45-year-old man hit her in the crosswalk. She died Thursday morning.

A witness tells CBS 58 News the victim's shopping bags were scattered across the road.

"The traffic's usually not so bad and I've never seen anything like this so, I'm really surprised it happened," Ashley McGlaughin said.

Police say it doesn't appear that alcohol was a factor in the crash.
