    A pedestrian who was hit by a car in Maine has died, and the driver has been charged with drunken driving.

    The Cumberland County Sheriff's department says 40-year-old Samantha Rinaldi, of Gray, died Saturday night at the hospital after being hit by a car in the town where she lived. The driver, 58-year-old Jay Westra, of North Yarmouth, was arrested for operating under the influence of alcohol.

    Rinaldi's ex-husband told the Portland Press Herald that she was a devoted mother of four children ages 14 to 20.

    Police said Westra's 11-year-old daughter was in the car during Saturday's crash. It was unclear Sunday whether he has an attorney.
