Woman killed crossing Ocean Avenue identified

A woman who was struck and killed by a vehicle in San Francisco’s Ocean Terraces neighborhood Tuesday morning has been identified as 80-year-old Candida Duazo, according to the medical examiner’s office.

Duazo, a San Francisco resident, was struck by a vehicle as she crossed the street at Ocean Avenue and Victoria Street around 9 a.m., according to police.

She was taken to the hospital, where she died of her injuries.

A preliminary investigation found the adult male driver was traveling north on Victoria when he made a right turn on to eastbound Ocean Avenue and struck the woman in the crosswalk.

The driver remained on the scene and cooperated with investigators. He did not appear to be driving while under the influence, police said. CrimeTransit
