An elderly woman died Wednesday night after being hit by a vehicle at High Drive and Allview Terrace in Laguna Beach.

At 5:29 p.m. police responded to a report of a traffic collision at the intersection. A car had been going northwest on High Drive toward Allview Terrace when an 80-year-old woman walked into the roadway. The vehicle hit the woman, causing major blunt force injuries, Sgt. Louise Callus said in email.

The woman was identified as Virginia Worthington, a Laguna Beach resident.

She was treated by medics at the scene and taken to Mission Hospital Laguna Beach, where she died from her injuries shortly after.

Callus said the driver of the vehicle was an acquaintance of the elderly woman and her family.
