1 woman killed, another injured in South End crash

BOSTON (MyFoxBoston.com) -- Two older female pedestrians were hit in the South End Wednesday afternoon, and one of them has died.

Police said the two were hit at Tremont Street and West Brookline Avenue. The two were taken to the hospital for unknown injuries where one, who was in her 70s, passed away, but the other is expected to survive.

Michele Zuccala who owns an eyeglass shop nearby said, "I saw a very distraught driver who obviously had to be the driver of the accident talking to people."

The women were at the cross walk when the driver of the Murano plowed into them. Witnesses tell FOX25 moments after the crash, the two women weren't even moving. The driver of the car was seen panicking.

Now investigators are trying to figure out if it was sun glare that caused the crash. No charges have been filed against the driver.
