A woman was killed after being struck by a tractor-trailer on U.S. 301 near Coley Boyd Road in Bulloch County, Georgia, Wednesday night.

The incident happened around 8 p.m. when a middle-aged woman was walking toward Agri Supply along the road close to traffic. According to Georgia State Patrol, the 18-wheeler was driving Southbound on U.S. 301 and tried to avoid the woman by attempting to stop and change lanes.

The woman was struck and pronounced dead at the scene.

“We’re working on interviewing the driver and trying to locate witnesses now. We’re making our residence at the scene taking photographs, things like that to help us further our investigation,” said David Bryant, a sergeant of the Georgia State Police, according to WTOC.

State troopers are investigating the accident.
