SANTA CLARA — A 75-year-old San Jose woman was struck and killed by a motorist last Friday while walking on a sidewalk outside the Westfield Valley Fair mall in Santa Clara, a police lieutenant said today.
At about 3:45 p.m. Friday, Aihua Liu was walking south on the east sidewalk on Winchester Boulevard north of Stevens Creek Boulevard when a car driven by a 19-year-old woman struck her, Santa Clara police Lt. Kurt Clarke said.
The motorist was exiting the driveway of the CVS Pharmacy at 3081 Stevens Creek Blvd. and attempting to turn north onto Winchester when she struck Liu, according to Clarke.
Emergency responders transported Liu to a hospital, where she later died, Clarke said.
The driver was not arrested but police have submitted the case to the Santa Clara County District Attorney’s Office for review, Clarke said.
