TUCSON, AZ (KOLD) - A 75-year-old woman hit while crossing the street with her 10-year-old granddaughter died overnight.

Police say the two were walking across South 12th Avenue near Nebraska Street Wednesday evening when a car hit them.

Investigators tell us the girl broke her arm.

But her grandmother, Maria Castillo, died at the hospital.

The girl and her grandma were not in a crosswalk.

The wreck closed down that intersection for a few hours.

Speed and alcohol were not factors.

Police say the driver was determined not to be at fault for the accident.
