(AP) - The Napa County Sheriff's Office says 65-year-old Laurie Anne Thompson, who was struck in the head by a television while at her Napa home during the Aug. 24 magnitude-6.0 quake, died on Friday.

Thompson did not go to the hospital until the next day when she felt dizzy and experienced a decline in mental function. Sheriff's officials say she died of an intracranial hemorrhage.

The earthquake did not claim any other lives, but left scores of people injured, among them a 13-year-old boy who broke his pelvis in several places when part of a chimney collapsed on him.

The quake caused extensive damage in the Napa Valley and the nearby city of Vallejo.
