A female pedestrian struck by a car earlier this month in Porterville has died, police said.
Elvira Garrido Diaz, 65, of Porterville was hit Jan. 8 on a sidewalk on West Henderson Avenue. She died Tuesday, police said.
The incident happened about 3:19 p.m. as Nicholas Paulson drove out of a parking lot in the 1200 block of West Henderson Avenue. Paulson told officers he did not see Diaz before the collision. Alcohol was not a factor, said police, who are continuing to investigate the incident.
