A woman died after being struck by a vehicle Tuesday morning in the 7300 block of Shallowford Road near the Hamilton Place mall, Chattanooga police spokeswoman Elisa Myzal said.

The woman was crossing the road in low light at around 6:44 a.m. when the driver, 64-year-old Richard Fierson, was driving through the intersection with a green light, according to a news release.

Fierson braked and swerved to the left in an attempt to avoid hitting the woman.

She was taken to a local hospital where she was pronounced dead. Her name will not be released until next of kin have been notified.

No charges have been filed against the driver
