SOUTH SALT LAKE — A Salt Lake woman died Saturday at an area hospital of injuries sustained in an auto-pedestrian accident.

The victim was identified as 26-yer-old Maria DeAquino, said South Salt Lake police detective Gary Keller.

DeAquino was crossing State Steet at 3605 South, walking west to east about 7:20 p.m. She had safely crossed the southbound lanes of the street when she was struck by a Toyota Prius traveling north. DeAquino was not in a crosswalk, Keller said.

The woman was treated for injuries at the scene but was pronounced dead at the hospital a short time later, Keller said.
