Police say the woman, 65-year-old Chiquita Marlow, was pronounced dead before 1 a.m. Saturday. 

The driver who hit her stayed on scene and is cooperating with officers.

It's believed the pedestrian was at fault and intoxication appears to have been a factor on the pedestrian's part. 

This is the second deadly pedestrian-involved crash in a matter of hours on Valley streets. In an incident around four hours earlier in Phoenix, a woman and child were killed when they were hit by a car. That driver fled the scene.
