Authorities have identified McKenzie Helene Gilbert as the pedestrian who was struck and killed by a vehicle in Santa Cruz as she was crossing an intersection. The driver of the vehicle, Kelsey Ann Knoll, was arrested by police, who administered tests for drugs and alcohol to see if she was under the influence at the time of the incident. The results of those tests are yet to be released, and the investigation is ongoing.

We extend our deepest condolences to the friends and family of the victim in this difficult time.
