TUCSON (AP) — Authorities have released the name of a wheelchair-bound woman who was fatally struck by a vehicle while leaving a high school graduation in Tucson.

Northwest Fire District officials say 82-year-old Dorothy Penrod died Thursday night, shortly after arriving at University of Arizona Medical Center.

The woman’s 59-year-old nephew also was struck and was listed Friday in extremely critical condition.

Fire District officials say a group of people was crossed a street after watching a relative graduate from Mountain View High School.

They say the group was crossing the road at a spot without a crosswalk or lights and about 600 feet from a lit intersection with traffic signals.

The driver of the vehicle involved in the accident was said to be cooperating with Pima County sheriff’s investigators.
