A woman struck by a truck while walking on state Highway 3 on Thursday evening died Friday, officials confirmed Monday.

Beth De Los Santos died after being taken to Clear Lake Regional Medical Center, Galveston County Sheriff Henry Trochesett said Monday.

De Los Santos was struck by a black GMC Sierra while she was trying to cross the road at about 7:40 p.m. Thursday.

The driver, Guadalupe Zavala, 61, was arrested and charged with intoxication assault with a vehicle, causing serious bodily injury. Zavala was no longer listed as a prisoner at the Galveston County jail on Monday.

Trochesett did not know whether the charges against Zavala would be increased because of De Los Santos' death, he said.
