EASTHAMPTON, Mass. (WWLP) – The woman struck by a car in Easthampton Monday afternoon has died.

Northwestern District Attorney’s Office spokesperson Mary Carey identified the victim as 63-year-old Denise Herzog, of Easthampton.

**The Northwestern District Attorney’s Office initially reported that the victim’s first name was Mary, but later sent out a correction**

Carey told 22News Herzog was crossing Cottage Street in a crosswalk at the time she was struck. She was then taken to Baystate Medical Center in Springfield, where she died early Tuesday morning.

“She did work at Riverside for a long time, I’m not sure how long, and she had retired,” Terry Major of Florence told 22News. “Very, very upsetting. A lot of people were asking questions.”

Carey said neither drugs nor alcohol nor excessive or erratic operation, are suspected of being involved in the crash.

Easthampton Police Chief Robert Alberti said on Monday that the driver was cited and that additional charges are possible. Police are continuing to look into what led up to the deadly accident.
