JACKSONVILLE, Fla.—A young woman was struck by a car Wednesday afternoon in a Sandalwood area neighborhood and died later at the hospital, authorities say.

Alicia Marie Ducceschi, 28, suffered life-threatening injuries in the accident and was transported to Memorial Hospital under a trauma alert, says public information officer Tom Francis with the Jacksonville Fire Rescue Department.

A bicycle is visible in the intersection, and Ducceschi was reportedly riding it at the intersection Lost Pine Drive and Pacific Silver Drive before being struck.

The driver of the car that hit the woman is reportedly cooperating with police.

This is an on-going investigation being conducted by the Traffic Homicide Unit with the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office.
