A septuagenarian street sweeper died after she was hit twice by two vehicles while crossing H. Lopez Boulevard in Manila Friday.

The Manila Police District identified the victim as 73-year-old Lydia Infante of Balut, Tondo, Manila.

Investigation showed that Infante was crossing H. Lopez Boulevard around 6:25 p.m. when a vehicle driven by Dennis dela Cruz travelling south accidentally hit the victim, causing her to fall to the ground. 

A taxi, driven by Anecito Pequit, which was travelling the opposite direction also hit the victim, police added.
