Authorities have identified the woman who was fatally run over by a car late last week while crossing a well-traveled intersection in south Minneapolis.
Maria Alvarado, 54, of Minneapolis, was struck about 6:25 a.m. Friday at W. Lake Street and S. Pleasant Avenue, and she died the following Sunday at HCMC from her injuries, according to the Hennepin County Medical Examiner's Office.
The driver remained on the scene and cooperated with investigators, police said. There is no indication that he was impaired at the time of the crash, police said.
The car was turning from southbound Pleasant onto eastbound Lake and struck the woman as she crossed legally in the intersection, police spokesman John Elder said Thursday.
