TMZ.com reports that 29-year-old Dakota was struck by a vehicle while walking on the west side on Tuesday just before 11:00 AM. She was rushed to UCLA Medical Center where she later died from her injuries.
Macaulay's rep issued a statement to TMZ saying, "We can officially confirm that the victim is Dakota Culkin. This is a terrible tragic accident. We have no further comment at this time."
Dakota was the second eldest of the seven Culkin siblings.
