A 56-year-old woman died late Saturday night, more than 20 hours after being struck by a vehicle on the Southwest Side.

Judith Bramwell, of the 5700 block of South St. Louis Avenue, was pronounced dead about 11:25 p.m. Saturday. 

Chicago Police Department News Affairs Officer Ron Gaines said the woman was hit while she tried to get in a car in the 6500 block of South Pulaski Road in the West Lawn neighborhood about 2 a.m. Saturday morning.

Charges are pending against the 51-year-old driver who hit her, Gaines said.
