MARIETTA, Ga. (AP) - Police outside Atlanta say a Kennesaw woman has died after being struck by a car as she tried to use a crosswalk to cross a street.

Cobb County police say 83-year-old Katie Swinehamer died Wednesday afternoon at a hospital following the collision.

The crash happened shortly before 8 a.m. Wednesday on George Busbee Parkway in Kennesaw.

Police say she was using the crosswalk when the driver of a black 2012 Chevrolet Avalanche made a left turn from Frey Road onto eastbound George Busbee Parkway, striking her.

Police say the driver, a 52-year-old Woodstock man, was not injured. Police say they expect to file charges in the case.
