January 03, 2019

MOBILE COUNTY, AL. – According to an online news report from fox10tv.com, a woman was hit by multiple vehicles December 30 on Alabama Highway 45. The woman died from her injuries.*

At approximately 6 p.m. on December 30, an unidentified woman was struck by at least two vehicles on Highway 45, near Eight Mile, in Mobile County, Alabama. The drivers of the two vehicles stayed at the scene and contacted authorities. The drivers have not been identified. 

“They were good citizens and stayed until officers arrived to the scene,” said Lt. Robert Martin, of the Prichard Police Department. “Oftentimes, we don’t get that from people, so this time, no charges are pending against either driver.”

The woman’s name has not been released at this time because authorities are having trouble making an identification and notifying family members. The accident caused part of Highway 45 to be closed off near Bellcase Road, about a mile south of the Highway 158 interchange. No additional information has been reported at this time.
