A woman who was hit Tuesday night while crossing a Murrieta street has died from her injuries.
Alaina Cisneros, 26, who goes by the nickname "Lainey," died at 4:21 p.m. Thursday afternoon at Inland Valley Medical Center, according to a coroner's report.
Cisneros was criticially injured at about 6:25 p.m. Tuesday as she walking across Robards Way at Jackson Avenue in Murrieta, according to police.
The impact occurred as the 17-year-old driver of a lifted Chevy pickup truck was making a left turn from Jackson onto Robards, Murrieta police Sgt. Jim Gruwell said.
The driver told police he did not see Cisneros, the sergeant said.
When paramedics arrived, Cisneros was unconscious in the roadway, police said.
Murrieta police said they did not immediately suspect drugs, alcohol or any other criminal acts contributed to the accident.
The young driver—with the permission of his mother—consented to a blood test and to be interviewed by police, Gruwell said.
The accident remains under investigation, Murrieta police Lt. Rob Firmes told Patch Thursday.
It can often take several days for traffic investigators to complete their assessments, the lieutenant said.
