    A car hit a bank building in Middletown.

    A 75-year-old woman was struck and killed while crossing the road in Palo Alto Friday night.

    Officers responded to reports of a major injury accident involving a truck and a pedestrian in the 800 block of Embarcadero Road near Rinconada Park around 8 p.m., police said.

    Emergency responders arriving on the scene located Palo Alto resident Ming Yuan Zuo, who had been hit while crossing Embarcadero Road between Walnut Drive and Bret Harte Street, where there is no crosswalk, according to police.

    Zuo was taken to Stanford Hospital where she later died.

    Police said a San Jose woman in her 30s was driving the pickup truck that struck Zuo and that she had stopped at the scene and cooperated with police.

    The cause of the collision has not yet been determined, but police say alcohol and drugs do not appear to be a factor.

    Police are asking anyone who witnessed the collision to call (650) 329-2413. Those who wish to remain anonymous may email a tip to paloalto@tipnow.org or sent a text or voice message to (650) 383-8984.
