Security video from a nearby business shows the woman crossing in the crosswalk, flinching as a white vehicle approaches. Police say after the woman was struck, she was dragged a few feet.

The 58-year-old woman, who has not yet been identified, was pronounced dead at the scene.

A witness was still distraught after seeing the crash unfold before her. She did not want to be identified or shown on camera.

“I just feel for her family, whoever she is. It could be somebody I know,” she said.

Police believe the suspect vehicle to be either a two-door Dodge Challenger with a broken right side door mirror and damage along the right side of the car.
