Woman Dies After Being Struck by Car While Crossing Busy Santee Road

Officials have identified a 67-year-old woman hit and killed by a car earlier this week while crossing a busy street in Santee.

The San Diego County Medical Examiner's (ME) office said the victim was Santee resident Mary Gary. On Thursday at around 9:30 a.m., Gary was crossing Mission Gorge Road from the northeast corner at 1st Street, a three-way intersection with no traffic signal or pedestrian crosswalk. 

She was struck in the middle lane by a driver in a 2006 Cadillac CTS.

Santee Paramedics worked to revive Gary in the roadway and then transported her to Sharp Memorial Hospital where she was later pronounced dead.

The driver, an 82-year-old woman, suffered no injuries. Drugs, alcohol or speed do not appear to be a factor in the accident, according to San Diego County Sheriff’s Office.

Westbound Mission Gorge Road from Magnolia Avenue to Edgemoor Drive was closed for several hours during the investigation into the deadly crash.
