Woman pushing shopping cart in Arden Arcade is killed in hit-and-run

A woman pushing a shopping cart in Arden Arcade early Monday was struck and killed by a hit-and-run driver.

The woman was heading south across Arden Way at Maple Glen Road at 12:45 a.m. when she was struck by a black Lincoln Aviator sport utility vehicle.

The SUV was traveling west on Arden Way in the slow lane when it hit the unidentified woman. The person behind the wheel of the SUV drove away, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The pedestrian died at the scene. Although there is a crosswalk at the intersection, it was not clear if the woman was between the painted lines when struck.
