101 year old pedestrian struck, killed by 91 year-old driver

A 101-year-old man is dead after being struck by a car driven by a 91-year-old woman as he crossed a Burbank street.
Police Sgt. Darin Ryburn says Otto Jensen was hit at about 8:15 p.m. Tuesday and died at a hospital. City News Service says Jensen was a well-known photographer in Burbank and served as grand marshal of the city's centennial parade last year.

Ryburn says driver Mary Beaumont stopped at the scene but was not arrested or cited. Reached by phone Wednesday, she said she was fine and declined comment.

Ryburn says it's unclear what led to the accident. He told City News Service that Jensen was not in a crosswalk but was crossing legally and had nearly made it across the street when he was struck.

It's a shame that he lived so long only to die like that. May his soul rest in peace...Amen!
