An 80-year-old woman who was walking along San Antonio Road was struck and killed by a car that was exiting a gas station Thursday morning, June 21, Los Altos police said.
The woman was walking along the west side of the road toward El Camino Real at about 8:54 a.m. A gold-colored 2001 Volkswagen station wagon struck her in the Arco gas station driveway at the corner of Loucks Avenue and San Antonio, Sgt. Paul Arguelles said.
The driver, a 60-year-old Los Altos resident, was exiting the south driveway of the station, which is located at 988 North San Antonio Road.
The victim suffered severe injuries and was transported to Stanford Hospital for treatment. She died later that afternoon, he said.
Investigators do not believe the driver was intoxicated, and the driver has been cooperating with police.
The woman has been identified by the Santa Clara County Medical Examiner, but her name is not being released until her family is contacted, he said.
She is described as Caucasian with gray collar-length hair. She was wearing a multicolored (purple, pink and light green) shirt, brown shorts and black tennis shoes with purple trim.
