Police said a teen driver struck a 59-year-old woman who was crossing the street at a crosswalk on Monday evening.

NORFOLK, Virginia — A woman who was hit while crossing the street on W. Little Creek Road Monday night has died from her injuries.

Dispatchers say they got a call at 7:05 p.m. about the crash at the intersection of W. Little Creek Road and Newport Avenue. Police say the driver, a 16-year-old girl, stayed at the scene.

Norfolk police said 59-year-old Karen Zablocki was trying to cross the street in a crosswalk when she was hit by an SUV making a left turn onto W. Little Creek Rd. from Newport Ave.

She was taken to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital in critical condition.

Both directions of Little Creek Road between Gloucester Avenue and Sheryl Drive were closed to traffic as officers investigated the scene, but the lanes opened a few hours later.

An investigation is ongoing, but police said that neither alcohol nor speed appear to be factors.
