An 78-year-old Milton resident was struck and killed on Highland Street near the Milton Police Headquarters and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center/Milton.
A Milton officer was leaving the station at about 5 p.m. Friday when he saw several cars stopped between the station and medical center, according to police.
He observed a body lying in the middle of the roadway after an elderly woman was struck by a Jeep sedan that was travelling northbound on Highland Street toward Mattapan, according to police.
The 78-year-old longtime Milton resident suffered major trauma and was in traumatic arrest. She was taken to BIDMC where she was pronounced dead a short time later, said police.
Milton Police are not identifying the victim pending family notification. No charges have been filed against the driver at this time.
Speed does not appear to be a factor. It was dusk and raining lightly at the time of the crash, said police.
Milton and State Police are investigating the accident.
