BILLERICA -- A 79-year-old Billerica woman who was struck by a car on Boston Road on Christmas night has died from her injuries.

Insook Choi was transported to Lahey Clinic in Burlington, where she was pronounced dead, police said.

On Wednesday at 7:43 p.m., Billerica police responded to a car crash involving a pedestrian at 770 Boston Road. While en route, police learned that the victim was seriously injured and that "Good Samaritans" had initiated life-saving measures.

Within minutes, police officers, fire personnel and advanced emergency medical personnel arrived and took over.

Police said the driver remained at the scene and cooperated.

It appears the victim was crossing an undesignated area of Boston Road that was poorly lit when the accident occurred, according to police. There have been no citation or charges issued.

Boston Road (Route 3A) was closed for three hours between Allen Road and Cook Street for an accident investigation. The restaurant remained open.

A Massachusetts State Police reconstruction team was called in to assist.
