A woman was struck and killed by a motorist in Redondo Beach and police are looking for the driver of a black SUV, who may have been responsible, authorities said Sunday.

It occurred at 9:05 p.m. Saturday on the 1500 block of Aviation Boulevard at the intersection of Grant Avenue, according to Lt. Shawn Freeman of the Redondo Beach Police Department.

The woman was crossing from the west sidewalk on Aviation at Grant when she was hit by a vehicle traveling south on Aviation. Instead of stopping, the motorist continued driving south on Aviation, Freeman said.

The woman died from her injuries, but it was unclear whether she was pronounced dead at the scene or elsewhere. Her name was withheld pending notification of relatives.

Police described the suspect vehicle as a black Audi Q5 SUV with the partial license plate 7MB and damage to the front windshield and hood.

Traffic is shut down in the north & southbound lanes near Aviation and Grant until at least 3 a.m. Motorists are urged to avoid the area.

Anyone with information about the collision was asked to contact Redondo Beach police Investigator Clint Daniel at (310) 379-2477 ext. 2721 or by email at clint.daniel@Redondo.org.
