UPDATE: Woman dies after being hit by a car in South Bend


A South Bend woman is dead after being hit by a car on Greenview Drive, just north of Sample Street late Monday night.

Police say a 55-year-old man was heading south on Lombardy Street when he hit 66-year-old Maria Garcia, who was crossing Lombardy. Garcia had two children with her, who had crossed the road just ahead of her.

Garcia was taken to the hospital, but according to a police press release sent to FOX 28 Tuesday morning, she died on the way.

Neither speed nor alcohol appear to be factors in the crash. Anyone with information on this case should call South Bend Police Lieutenant Eugene Eyster. His desk number is (574) 235-9818.
