The 70-year-old Seaside woman who died Tuesday after being struck by a car in Pacific Grove has been identified as Kathy Dearing.

Police said the collision took place "in the dark" about 6 p.m., while Dearing was crossing Pine Avenue in the middle of the block between 16th and 17th streets.

Officers said the driver was a 55-year-old Pacific Grove resident and said speed did not appear to be a factor. Police are not releasing the name of the driver while the investigation continues.

The woman was taken to Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula and later taken to San Jose Regional Medical Center, where she died.
