A 61-year-old Sacramento woman died after she was hit by a car while walking Sunday night at Florin Road and Gloria Drive in the Pocket neighborhood, police said.

The Sacramento County coroner’s office has identified the victim as Alice Chiu, who was hit by a car around 9 p.m. The vehicle driver has not been identified.

Sacramento police said the victim was driving southbound on Gloria Drive before she got out of her car and walked into the street. The driver of a westbound vehicle saw the woman and attempted to swerve before striking the victim, police said.

The driver stopped at the scene, and neither speed nor alcohol appeared to be factors in the collision, police said.
