A woman hit by a car crossing a Kansas City street one week ago has died.

The crash happened a week ago near 43rd and Main streets, and now, the Kansas City Art Institute is mourning one of their students.

On July 20, an SUV hit two art institute students crossing the street.

Haley Hackett died earlier this week. The California native was a senior at the institute. The school says they are going to showcase her work at graduation and dedicate the ceremony to her.

Bike Walk KC is trying to raise awareness for pedestrian safety after incidents like this.

At this point, the driver of the car has not been charged.
