An elderly woman who was struck by a work van Tuesday afternoon on Putt Putt Place road has died from her injuries, according to Albemarle County police.

Dolores Kostelni, 75,  of Lexington, died Thursday night, according to police.

She was hit by a 2004 Ford cargo van as she was crossing at the intersection of Putt Putt Place and East Rio Road at 3:14 p.m. Tuesday. The van was making a right turn onto Rio.
