101-year-old man killed by 91-year-old driver

BURBANK, Calif. (AP) -- Police say a 101-year-old pedestrian has died after being struck by a 91-year-old driver in Burbank.

Police Sgt. Darin Ryburn says Otto Jensen was hit at about 8:15 p.m. Tuesday and died at a hospital.

City News Service says Jensen was a well-known photographer in Burbank and served as grand marshal of the city's centennial parade last year.

Ryburn says driver Mary Beaumont stopped at the scene and was interviewed by police but was not arrested or cited. Reached by phone Wednesday, she said she was fine and declined comment.

Ryburn says it's unclear what led to the accident. He told City News Service that Jensen was not in a crosswalk but was crossing legally and had nearly made it across the street when he was struck.
