A woman struck by a car in Malden Wednesday has died, Malden Police said Friday.

The 50-year-old woman, who is not being identified by police, and a 45-year-old man were struck near the intersection of Taylor Street and Broadway about 7 p.m. Wednesday night by a car traveling in the northbound lane on Broadway, police said.

The male victim was hospitalized with injuries, but is expected to recover, Malden Police Lieutenant Marc Gatcomb said Friday. Both victims are of Malden and the driver -- who is cooperating with police -- is from Saugus, he said.

"It's a tragic accident," he said.

It is unclear whether the victims were on a crosswalk at the time, Gatcomb said. Whether the driver will face charges has not been determined, he said.

The accident is being investigated by Malden Police and the State Police's accident reconstruction unit.
