    A woman was critically injured when a car driving eastbound on Camino Tassajara struck her in the roadway near Tassajara Lane Monday night, August 19, 2013, according to police.

    Danville police identified a woman who was critically hurt when she was hit by a suspected drunken driver in Danville on Monday night.

    The woman, 53-year-old Diana Gregory of Danville, was injured when a car driving eastbound on Camino Tassajara struck her in the roadway near Tassajara Lane around 9 p.m., according to police.

    Gregory was not carrying any identification, and went unidentified until Tuesday afternoon.

    Police said her employer became concerned when she did not show up for work this morning.

    Gregory was taken to John Muir Medical Center in Walnut Creek with life-threatening injuries.

    Police said the car’s driver, Samuel Herrick, 50, of Danville was arrested in connection with the accident. He was booked at the Martinez Detention Facility on suspicion of DUI causing injury.

    Dickerson said earlier Tuesday that police did not immediately receive any information about the woman's identity, nor any missing-person reports. They planned to analyze the victim's fingerprints, but in the end didn't need to do that.

    Anyone with information about the victim's identity or the collision is asked to call Danville police immediately at (925) 314-3700.
