Police lights day

A 76-year-old Henrico County woman was fatally struck Monday morning by a vehicle backing out of a driveway, police said.

Henrico police said a driver was backing a 2012 Jeep Cherokee out of a driveway when the pedestrian was struck. The victim, identified as Lucy Le, was taken to a hospital, where she died.

Police said neither speed nor alcohol were being considered as factors. The incident remains under investigation.
