A 56-year-old woman is dead after she was hit by a car in Phoenix Sunday night.

Authorities were called to the area of 28th Street and Thomas Road after receiving reports of a crash before 8 p.m.

Police say the woman was crossing the road mid-block when a 56-year-old male driver hit her while heading eastbound. The driver reportedly drove a short distance after the collision but pulled over and stayed at the scene. 

The driver was processed for DUI and released. He may be charged pending lab results. 

Speed does not appear to be a factor in the crash.
