Officers and medics responded to the scene, near 4th Avenue North and Bell Street, at about 6:30 p.m. after receiving a report of a car hitting a pedestrian, said Sgt. Mark Marsh of the Edmonds police.
They arrived within two mminutes of being dispatched, but the woman was already dead.
A preliminary investigation found that the victim was crossing 4th Avenue when she was struck by a late model SUV being driven by a 36 year old female Edmonds resident.
The driver, who had been initiating a left turn onto 4th Ave North, stopped immediately and called 911.
The driver is cooperating fully and there is no indication at this time that drugs or alcohol were a factor in the crash.
