SANTA CLARA (CBS SF) — An elderly woman was struck and killed by a car backing out of a driveway in Santa Clara Saturday morning, a police lieutenant said.

The driver stopped to help the woman, but she succumbed to her injuries a short time later. “We believe this was just a tragic accident,” Clarke said.

The woman’s name has not been released pending notification of relatives. The incident remains under investigation.
