A 65-year-old Schenectady resident is dead after she was hit by a car Thursday night on Crane Street. 

Schenectady police responded at 7:32 p.m. to the area of 1020 Crane St., where they found Anna M. Escobar had been struck by a car, according to a press release from the Police Department. She was treated at the scene before being transported to Albany Medical Center, where she had been in critical condition before before dying of her injuries. 

The occupants of the vehicle, who have not been named by police, stayed at the scene and cooperated in the investigation, police said. Police said they do not believe drugs or alcohol played a role in the accident. 

The intersection of Crane Street, Chrisler Avenue and Main Street was shut down for an extended period of time in order to reconstruct the scene, but has since reopened to traffic. 

No other details were available. The investigation is continuing.
