Officials seek family of elderly woman struck by car

SAN GABRIEL — Police asked the public’s help Thursday in identifying an elderly woman who was critically injured while walking across the street earlier this week.
The crash occurred about 5:20 p.m. Tuesday at San Gabriel Boulevard and Live Oak Street, San Gabriel police Sgt. Antonio Hernandez said.
The woman was walking in a marked crosswalk when a 43-year-old West Covina woman driving a sedan failed to see her in time, the sergeant said.
The driver remained at the scene and cooperated with investigators, he added, and no signs of a crime were apparent Thursday.
The injured woman had no identification with her when she was struck, police said.
She is described as about 70 years old, Asian, about 5 feet tall and about 90 pounds. She was wearing a white shirt and a black skirt.
She was listed in grave condition at a hospital Thursday, Hernandez said.
“We’re just trying to find her loved ones,” he said.
Anyone with information is asked to call the San Gabriel Police Department and refer to case 2009-02612.
