A 23-year-old woman died after she was struck by a car as she walked across Rowena Avenue in Silver Lake. The woman was walking outside of a crosswalk when she was hit by a car traveling westbound at about 10:30 p.m., according to Sgt. Gregory Hoyte with the LAPD’s Central Traffic Bureau. The victim died at a hospital, Hoyte said. The driver of the vehicle, who remained on the scene, did not show any evidence of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. No arrests have been made, Hoyte said. He did not have an exact location of the accident but one Eastsider reader reported that police had blocked off Rowena at West Silver Lake Drive.
