Dakota Culkin, 29, the one year older sister of former child actor Macaulay Culkin (Home Alone) has died after being hit by a car in Los Angeles.
She was struck by a car when she stepped off the curb and in front of a moving vehicle on the west side of Los Angeles on Tuesday evening.
She was taken to UCLA Hospital with massive head trauma and died from her injuries Wednesday afternoon.
According to the LAPD, the driver of the car stopped, tried to help Culkin and identified himself to law enforcement. Detectives determined he was not under the influence of drugs or alcohol and that no crime was committed.
Dakota Culkin was the second eldest of the Culkin clan of seven.
Culkin worked in production design, most recently on the film "Lost Soul".
"She was a real sweetheart and excited to learn all she could about the film business," the film's director, Dana Schroeder tells.
"She was also humble about her background and preferred that she remain incognito. She was a real pleasure to have on the production set. We will miss her."
