A 28-year-old Arlington woman who was struck by a pickup truck near Washington-Lee High School two weeks ago has succumbed to her injuries, according to police.

Alison Beth Drucker, an environmental consultant with Falls Church-based JDM Associates, was walking her dog on the Quincy Street bridge on Monday, April 11, when police say a pickup truck traveling northbound on the bridge struck her and the dog.

The dog died on the scene. Drucker was taken to the hospital with critical injuries, including a head injury. She was eventually placed in a medically-induced coma by doctors and earlier today she passed away.

The 18-year-old driver of the pickup truck, Joseph DiFilippo, was charged with reckless driving a day after the accident. No word yet on whether additional charges will be filed. Police say they are still investigating the accident.
