RENO (AP) — Reno police say a 79-year-old woman has died of her injuries after the motorized wheelchair she was riding in was struck by a vehicle.

Police say rescuers responded to the 1600 block of Silverada Boulevard a little after 5 p.m. Monday. Authorities say Reno resident Anastacia Redulla was lying in the street while a motorized wheelchair was pinned under the vehicle.

Redulla was taken to Renown Regional Medical Center, where she was later pronounced dead.

Officials say it appears the wheelchair was in the street when it was struck. They warn drivers to be especially watchful for pedestrians during sunrise and sunset hours, when visibility is bad.
