    A woman walking along a street in El Cajon was killed Tuesday when an SUV veered off the road for unknown reasons and struck her on the sidewalk, police said.

    The Medical Examiner's Office identified the woman Wednesday as 52-year-old Mary Thien-Murguia from El Cajon who was living in a San Diego care facility at the time of her death. 

    The El Cajon Police Department (EPD) said Thien-Murguia was walking westbound on the south sidewalk of Greenfield Drive's 600 block when she was hit by a westbound blue Chevy Suburban that veered into oncoming traffic and onto the sidewalk at around 5:15 p.m.

    Emergency responders performed CPR on the victim at the scene and transported her to an area hospital where she died from her injuries.

    The driver of the SUV, a 49-year-old El Cajon resident, remained at the scene and was cooperative with investigators, according to police.

    It was not clear why the vehicle crossed into eastbound lanes. Police said it was not yet known if drugs or alcohol were a factor in the crash.

    EPD is asking for anyone with more information on the crash to contact the department at (619) 579-3311.
