SOMERVILLE— Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan and Somerville Chief of Police David Fallon have confirmed the identity of the pedestrian who died last night as the result of an apparent hit-and-run as Allison Donovan, 40, of Somerville.

On February 8, at approximately 7:16 p.m. Somerville Police responded to a report of a hit-and-run at the intersection of Powder House Boulevard and Hardan Road in Somerville. Two adult pedestrian women were transported to Mount Auburn Hospital where Allison Donovan was pronounced dead. The second female has been discharged.
