A woman was struck by two cars yesterday as she rode her scooter through North Hollywood last night.Authorities haven't yet confirmed her identity, but she was described as a woman between 22 and 30 years old, according to City News Service.

The woman was heading eastbound on Sarah Street next to the 134 freeway, when she blew through a stop sign as she made a left turn onto Tujunga Avenue, North Hollywood-Toluca Lake Patch reported. One car hit her, causing her to spin out into another lane and get hit by a second car.

Both drivers stopped to render aid, and police were called to the scene around 7:30 pm. Neither driver was arrested or cited, as police believe the victim was at fault. She was pronounced dead at a local hospital.

Police believe the woman may have been living in a car parked near the scene of the fatal crash.
