The woman killed after she was hit by a car in Wellington has been named.

Delia Grace Williams, 55, died when she was hit by a car in the Wellington suburb of Northland on Tuesday evening, prompting police to open a homicide investigation into her death.

She died before she could be transported to hospital.

An 58-year-old man has been arrested in relation to the crash, and was charged with assault with a blunt weapon and excess breath alcohol but police say they aren't ruling out further charges.

He appeared in Wellington District Court on Wednesday and was remanded in custody.

The man will reappear in court on Monday.

The case is being treated as a homicide investigation with police speaking to witnesses at the scene to determine the circumstances leading up to the crash.
