Woman, 48, Fatally Struck Crossing Highway in Denton

Police said a 48-year-old woman was fatally struck by a vehicle while trying to cross a highway in Denton Tuesday night.

Denton police said a man reported hitting the woman with his Toyota Camry on northbound North Loop 288 near Kings Row at about 11:30 p.m.

The victim was pronounced deceased at the scene, according to police.

The driver of the sedan and a witness driving a pickup truck stopped and waited for police to arrive.

"We're going to investigate it fully, but it looks like there's not much the driver could've done to avoid this," Denton police spokesman Shane Kizer said.

Police said no charges have been filed.

Authorities closed northbound Loop 288 for several hours while they investigated.
