      EUGENE, Ore. - A woman hit by a van Thursday morning later died at the hospital, police said.

      Officials said that Tamara Kay Glenn, 45 of Springfield, was crossing Chambers Street at 18th Ave. when at around 8:40 a.m. when a full-sized Chevy van making a turn ran into her.

      The driver of the van was later identified as Michael Alston, 44 of Eugene.

      Police said that Alston was driving west on 18th when he made a right-hand turn onto Chambers and hit Glenn.
