I’m a lifelong resident of Alhambra and having a local newspaper, like Alhambra Source, is very important to me. It’s the only way to know the issues that will directly affect my day to day, where I live. That’s why I decided to support Alhambra Source with a monthly donation.

I support Alhambra Source as often as I can because I believe a free and independent press is vital to the democratic process. No other news outlet with high journalistic standards consistently covers the stories and issues that matter to our community.

Elderly woman struck and killed by car in Alhambra

A 75-year-old woman of Alhambra was hit and killed by a car on Wednesday morning, according to the Alhambra Police Department.

Officers received a call of a vehicle-versus-pedestrian accident at approximately 9:43am on Wednesday. The accident occurred at the intersection of Main and Cedar Streets in Alhambra.

Upon arrival, officers and Alhambra Fire Department paramedics treated the female victim at the scene and transferred her to the Huntington Memorial Hospital in Pasadena. The woman was pronounced dead several minutes later by hospital staff. The driver of the vehicle remained at the scene and is cooperating with investigators.

The preliminary investigation indicates that the pedestrian was walking northbound across Main Street when she was hit in the crosswalk by a van traveling westbound. The cause of the incident is still under investigation but driver intoxication does not appear to be a factor.

  2. That is a dangerous intersection with SEVERAL streets converging unto to Main Street and cars coming from Fremont turning around that bend, many times don’t react fast to pedestrians crossing that area.

    Someone from her street reported this a few days ago on Facebook, and another neighbor started an on-line petition to try to get the situation remedied. Apparently, residents in the area have been reporting the dangers for many years. I signed the on-line petition, but can’t remember who originated it. I hope that someone from the Alhambra Source can find out and add the link to the article.
