"The initial investigation revealed the woman, a local transient, and her dog attempted to cross illegally, eastbound across Euclid Street when they were struck by the motorist driving southbound," Steinle said.
The 22-year-old man who was driving the Dodge SUV remained at the scene and did not appear to be under the influence of drugs or alcohol, investigators said.
