Police have identified the woman killed after she was hit by a pickup Wednesday afternoon while crossing Valley Mills Drive as Waco resident Luddie Hubert, 88.
Police believe a vehicle driving southeast in the 500 block of Valley Mills had slowed to let Hubert cross, when the pickup drove around the slowed vehicle and hit Hubert, not knowing she was there, Waco police Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton said Wednesday.
Hubert was taken to Baylor Scott & White Hillcrest Medical Center with severe injuries. She was pronounced dead at the hospital shortly before 6 p.m.
There was no designated crosswalk where the woman was struck, Swanton said. Police said the crash appeared to be an accident, but the investigation remains ongoing.
