LAREDO, Texas (KGNS) - An auto-pedestrian accident that took place on Monday claimed the life of a 70-year-old woman.
The incident happened at the corner of Zaragoza and Convent, where the victim was hit by a vehicle while trying to cross the street.
The woman was airlifted to a San Antonio hospital, but unfortunately she passed away Wednesday morning as the result of her injuries.
The Laredo Police Department is investigating the incident and they are checking to see if there were any cameras that were in the area that may have captured the incident.
The driver of the vehicle stopped to render aid and has cooperated with the investigation.
It appears as though the victim in this case may not have been using a designated crosswalk.
