A 52-year-old Brighton woman struck by a tow truck while crossing a street in Brighton Center last night died at a Boston hospital this morning, authorities said today.

Police responded to a call for a pedestrian struck by a vehicle near the busy intersection of Chestnut Hill Avenue and Washington Street at shortly after 6 p.m. Thursday and found the victim suffering from severe trauma and life-threatening injuries, officials said.

She was pronounced dead this morning at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, according to Boston Police.

No charges have been filed against the driver, a 24-year-old Watertown man, but police said this morning that detectives and the Suffolk County District Attorney’s office are investigating.

The tow truck is owned by a company based in Allston, a district attorney spokesman said.

Police and the district attorney's office declined to name the towing company, the truck's driver or the victim.

No further details were immediately available, officials said.
