A woman was dead after a crash just south of San Diego State’s campus Friday night.

A driver struck a pedestrian just after 7:40 p.m. on College Avenue between Arosa Street and Mesita Drive, San Diego police Officer Robert Heims told The Daily Aztec.

The driver, a 66-year-old woman, was headed north on College Avenue when the crash happened, according to Heims. She initially fled the scene of the crash, but returned in under an hour, 10News reported.
