Police said Brown, of the 3700 block of N. Charles Street, was crossing the street at a crosswalk. She was taken to Sinai Hospital and pronounced dead a short time later.

Police spokesman Det. Donny Moses declined to identify the driver because he said the driver is not facing any criminal charges. Moses said the driver remained at the scene in the 4700 block of Roland Avenue and investigators do not believe alcohol is a factor. He said the investigation is ongoing.

Brown’s family could not be reached Friday.
