One of two people hit in a Pleasanton crosswalk on Oct. 13 has died.
"We received word that the female pedestrian succumbed to her injuries last night," a Pleasanton police news release said. "The extent of her injuries and the exact cause of death are not known to the police department at this time."
The names of the driver and those who were hit are not being released by police.
The woman and her husband were crossing Santa Rita Road at a crosswalk near Francsco Street at about 8:37 p.m. last Sunday. Both sustained what police described as "severe injuries" and were taken to Eden Hospital.
Pleasanton Police Sgt. Robert Leong said hospital officials described the man in "serious but alert" condition as of Tuesday.
The driver, identified as a 49-year-old Danville resident, stopped at the scene and is cooperating with police.
Flashing yellow lights embedded in the Santa Rita Road crosswalk had been removed earlier; yellow warning lights on posts facing traffic in both directions were operating when the couple crossed Santa Rita.
City workers have yet to explain why the embedded lights were removed, although their positions on Santa Rita are marked in red as if the the city planned to replace them.
Leong said the couple was crossing from the Amador Center shopping center, apparently headed to their home.
The crash closed Santa Rita Road for several hours Sunday night. The Pleasanton Police Department's Special Operations Unit were called out and will be handling the investigation.
The cause of the accident has not been determined.
Anyone with information related to the investigation is asked to contact the Pleasanton Police Department at 931-5100.
