Investigators are seeking the identity of a woman who was hit and killed Friday night after she allegedly attempted to cross Soledad Canyon Road against a red light, according to sheriff's officials.

"We still don't know the woman's name yet," said Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff's Lt. Mark Hershey. "We're looking for anybody who might know who (she) is. She didn't have any (identification) on her."

The female driver was travelling westbound on Soledad Canyon Road when her vehicle allegedly struck the woman in the cross walk at Soledad Canyon Road and Solamint Road in Canyon Country.

Santa Clarita Valley sheriff's deputies and Los Angeles County Fire responded to the scene at approximately 9:25 p.m.

The unidentified woman was transported to Henry Mayo Memorial Hospital where she was pronounced dead, according to the Sheriff's Station news release.

Hershey said investigators suspect the woman, who he described as partially dressed, might have been under the influence, but that has not been confirmed, he said.

The driver of the vehicle was also transported to the hospital but was not injured.

Santa Clarita Sheriff's detectives are still investigating the collision.

Anyone who witnessed the incident or with information about the unidentified woman can call the Sheriff's Station at (661) 255-112.
